Say hello to the lovely Nutmeg Trench and Jacket sewing pattern! Two classic shapes with a modern twist, that will become a staple of your handmade wardrobe all year around 🙂
You can go for the trench version in a gentle A-shape and knee-length or for the jacket, laying just below your hips and offering a closer fit. Both options come with optional front patch pockets with flaps or with in-seam pockets for the trench.
The sleeves have a slight gather at the crown and a full gather at the bottom and you can finish them with a normal cuff or with a sleeve placket and a cute bow. The flat collar is easy to assemble and has an optional ruffle running along the outer curve.
Also, the trench comes with a belt and belt loops and both versions feature a front button placket. Lastly, the seams are finished using bias binding, a technique also applied on the collar. And the best part is that lots of the details are interchangeable between both the jacket and the trench.
Without a lining, Nutmeg is the best garment to wear in between season or to layer up all-year-around and a great first outwear project for a beginner. You can use many different fabrics to get a more structured feeling using canvas or oilskin or a more drapey feeling with tencel twill, for example.
With lots of detailed instructions, technical drawings and tips to get the best results, the Nutmeg Trench and Jacket will become a staple, with a twist, in your handmade wardrobe.
We have updated our sizes and now we offer two ranges: from UK 6 / US 2 to UK 24 / US 20 (cup B) and from UK 18/ US 14 to UK 36 / US 32 (cup D).
Already love Nutmeg? Let’s go fabric shopping then! 🙂 If you prefer a more structured finished, choose a medium-weight fabric like denim, twill, gabardine, canvas, flannel or oilskin, for example. On the contrary, if you fancy a more relaxed style, go for tencel twill, linen or a medium weight chambray.
