Now Available: Minoru Jacket PDF Pattern

Another one of our current patterns is now available in downloadable PDF format! Today it’s the Minoru Jacket.

1103 Minoru Jacket

Now is the perfect season for making (and wearing!) this type of jacket. Make it out of water-resistant or waterproof fabrics if you live somewhere wet, like Vancouver!

For less inclement weather, cotton canvas and cotton twill are easy to sew and work well for this style. Both versions shown below are medium-weight cotton fabrics. Just make sure your fabric looks good when gathered, as this jacket is gathered around the neckline and gathers at the elastic waistline.

It has a hidden hood that rolls up into the collar, which is great if you don’t always want to have a hood showing. It’ll come in handy when the weather changes. And while the hood is tucked away, it makes a nice comfortable roll around your neck as it sits inside the oversized collar.

The great part about this jacket is how the waist elastic brings it in at the back for a more flattering shape. You get to adjust the elastic during the construction process to get the fit exactly right for you. And it’s fairly easy to sew, as jackets go.

This is the one I made for the sew-along, in the peach cotton here! Speaking of which, if you want to sew this pattern with extra help, check out the Minoru Sew-Along, one of our most thorough and detailed sew-alongs on the site. That link will bring up all posts tagged with the sewalong, this one will bring you to a full list of all sewalong posts so you can find more specific help.

Again, the downloadable pattern will include both print-at-home and copy shop versions. Always!

The Minoru Jacket PDF pattern is on sale for the next month!

The PDF pattern is $11.98 (regular price $13.98) and will be offered at the sale price until November 21st.

    I love this pattern. I am so proud of my red Minoru which I made a couple of years ago during the sewalong, which was fantastic. I love it so much that I am thinking of making another one! Thanks for a great pattern, Tasia!

    Wow! This coat is amazing! But, unfortanelly, almost impossible to use here, in Brazil!!

    I posted in my blog photos wearing my belcarra blouse. It would be an honor for me receive you visit there. I hope you like my blouse as I did:

    Have a nive weekend,

    How many pages is the pdf? I would like to order and I’m being a tad bit impatient but don’t want the pdf if it will cost me more to print it (at .25 per sheet at our library) out than ordering the paper.

      It’s 61 pages. You can see before buying, if you look under ‘Other Details’ under the description. All PDF patterns have the number of pages listed. That is for the pattern pieces only and doesn’t include the instructions.

        It doesn’t matter as much for the Minoru but for patterns that have different views, we have it detailed so you only have to print the pages for the view you want! But that doesn’t help too much for the Minoru Jacket :)

          When will the paper pattern version of the Minoru be available again? I would really love to make this jacket but won’t use a pdf version.
