This is from an old 1980’s pattern I stumbled across at a fayre. It was in a falling apart paper envelope, and the sizes are all pretty different to what sizes are now. It’s become a unisex jacket with Charles my friend fitting perfectly into the extra large. And it’s even more adaptable than that, with an option of having it without the elasticated waist and turning it into a jacket with cleaner lines. Made from a blend of organic hemp and cotton plain cloth, this jacket is simultaneously soft and structured.
Side pockets. Light interfaced collar.

The natural colours we work with are durable and remain strong for a good length of time if washed with care (machine wash 30 degrees Celcius). However part of their joy and uniqueness is also the way they will change and respond to their environment over time, including the type of water they are washed in. For best results always follow care instructions on the label or refer to the care section under FAQs.
