THE OTTOLINE 6-18 MERCHANT & MILLS
Regular price £16.50
The Ottoline is a boxy workwear jacket with cuff and side seam splits and inside pocket. Although a lovely design detail the vents are a little tricky, so we have included instructions to simplify Ottoline by excluding the side seams and sleeve vents if you like.
Skill level; Experienced, but not doing the slits on the hip or sleeves would make it a more intermediate level.
We have found that a heavy duty thread rather than a topstitch thread gives a more authentic look to the topstitching and is easier to use. You may find you get a better stitch using a matching ‘sew all’ thread in the bobbin.
This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 6 – 18. 1.5cm seam allowance is included in the pattern unless otherwise stated.
We recommend using 8 – 12.5oz non stretch denim, medium weight cotton drill or canvas, dry oilskin, linen and corduroy.
You will also need:
- Matching thread.
- 5 x buttons approx 22mm (7 if you are doing buttons at the cuff)
- Contrast top stitch thread optional.
When you have made your jacket we would recommend washing it inside out.
