About the pattern

The Charlie Jacket is a classic, collarless tweed jacket - fully lined, with panelled/princess seams, an open front without fastenings, and optional contrast details.

The pattern is available in our two size ranges (UK 6-20 B-cup and UK 16-30 D-cup). See the sizing page on our main website for further information on our size ranges, including body measurements. Both size ranges are included with the course.

The pattern pages are provided as PDF files in print at home (A4/US Letter) and Copyshop (A0) formats. You will need to print these off in order to use your pattern, as with any PDF sewing pattern.
