Wardrobe by Me : Overshirt Jacket
The Overshirt sewing pattern is a shirt jacket inspired by work-wear or the boxy Lumberjack shirt. The jacket has a convertible collar, several interchangeable pockets, and two-piece cuffed sleeves. The boxy body has side slits and a generous back yoke. All the visible seams are topstitched. This is a timeless men's silhouette that can be made in many different types of fabric.
Skill Level 3/4 - The design is straightforward. You will be introduced to sewing a double yoke, convertible collar, and cuffs. If you are more adventurous, you can try the welt pockets.
Men's sizes 2XS-3XL
The shirt is suitable for all medium-weight woven fabrics such as cotton, linen, wool, or other comfortable fabric. Choose interfacing that works with the weight of the fabric.
