Louise’s Minoru Jacket

While we’re talking about Minoru Jackets and preparing for the Sew-Along, I thought I’d point out more finished Minoru Jackets around the blog world! If you haven’t picked a fabric yet, maybe this bold print that Louise used will get you inspired. It’s wild and loud and I love it! It makes a statement for sure.

Click here to see more photos and read more on Louise’s blog, a view into my world. (And check out her print placement on the back and inside the pocket, too!) She didn’t like the gathers into the collar, and replaced them with pleats instead. A good idea if you wanted a flatter look, or if your fabric resists gathers. I love how everyone has put their own personal touches into their jacket projects! That’s the beauty of sewing, you can truly customize your projects to suit you.

I would have never thought of using such a bold graphic print for this jacket, but it’s pretty awesome. Equally cool with jeans and a tee, or a casual black dress!

    Hello, it looks like the link to Louise’s post about her jacket doesn’t work, I’d love to see it!

    I came across her version when I was googling Minoru jacket. I couldn’t believe it was the same jacket pattern, but it’s great! I just finished mine yesterday (I got too excited to wait until Monday, ha). Looking forward to seeing more versions pop up in the next few weeks.
