Plaid Jacket in Royal Stewart Tartan
Design by Susan Helene Kramer for Adults
Eye Candy - pattern not included
I thought you'd enjoy seeing this one-of-a-kind plaid woolen jacket I designed and sewed for myself this winter.
I used a thick woolen blanket in the tartan plaid Royal Stewart. I ordered the blanket from Scotland. It was five by six feet in size.
Because it is so thick I did not make a lining. Thank goodness it is not itchy. And it is very warm, suitable about 50F or 10C on its own, over a blouse.
The front has a wide inner facing to give it body. There are two hidden pockets accessible on the left inner front facing.
The entire jacket is hand-sewn with quilting thread. There are no bare seams, rather, I trimmed one seam narrower after sewing, and folded the other seam over, tucking in the narrow seam, and sewed it down. The hems on the lower edge and the neck facing are bound in a red satin seam binding.
I'd like to say, that the material you fall in love with may not be on the bolts, but could be a find like this blanket was. I am always on the lookout for possibilities.
Ever since I made my plaid jacket I've noticed plaid jackets in various tartans on others.
And, as you can see, my 17 year old tabby, Katje, kept warm by the radiator this winter.
Below is a plaid jacket, with a culotte skirt I made as a teenager from a standard pattern 50 years ago …
