Concept Jacket



How about making a light-weight patchwork quilted jacket? Surprise! The base is a sweatshirt. Making the jacket consists of deconstructing the sweatshirt into its component parts. Then use your chosen fabrics which you have cut into patches to cover the parts and quilt into place.
Reassemble the parts, add a front closure (zipper or buttons with loops: your choice) and finish sleeves, bottom and neck with bindings. Much of this will involve sewing at home (homework).

Materials needed:
One 22” zipper OR buttons for the closure of the jacket (creation of buttonholes will not be taught in class)
One washed and dried sweatshirt that is at least one size larger than you usually wear
Your choice of fabrics:
For the sample, twelve 1/8 th yards of fabric were used which adds up to be 1 ½ yards
Six fat quarters + your free one would work

Students to provide:
Sewing machine in good working order
Thread
Top: variegated, solids or a variety for the quilting that will show
For the bobbin: 2 spools to match your sweatshirt as this will show on the inside of the jacket
Sharp scissors & your favorite rotary cutter
Usual sewing supplies
