The West End Jacket | A Pattern Collaboration with Camimade Patterns

Made in collaboration with fabulous French patternmaker Camille Neuville of Camimade Patterns, the Peppermint West End Jacket is a universally useful, gender-neutral design with clever construction. It features a touch of tasteful top-stitching and a few fascinating flat-felled seams. Not to mention the patch pockets, perfectly placed for putting your mitts in and big enough to store all your essentials. Sew it in thick wool for winter warmth or lightweight cotton as a summer shacket – this is a pattern you’ll want to make again and again.

We’re beyond grateful to our sewing partner Spoonflower for helping to make our free patterns possible! We used Spoonflower’s Dogwood Denim, printed with watercolour tie-dye by South African illustrator Melly Williams, and navy denim from Byron Bay bohemian Esther Fallon Lau, as well as a statement pop of Matisse-inspired magnolias from Carrie Cantwell.

The free download of this pattern will be available from 8 September 2022.
