Friday Pattern Ilford Jacket


The Ilford features drop shoulders and comes with two sleeve options: a placketed sleeve with cuff, and an easy-to-sew boxy sleeve for a more relaxed vibe. It also includes two lengths as well as a bunch of pocket templates that you can mix and match! The possibilities are endless! You can wear the Ilford as a jacket or shirt depending on the fabric you use.  This is a fun, skill-building pattern that you will want to make/wear again and again! This pattern is for everyone and looks great on all genders!

  • Purchase includes sizes XS/0 – 7X/32 (32”/81cm -60”/152cm chest). 
  • Drafted using sample measurements for a B-cup

Designed for woven fabrics, make a structured and boxy Ilford out of denim or canvas, or a relaxed and lightweight Ilford out of linen. The possibilities are endless with this pattern.
