Sailor-collar jacket and wide-legged pants

Sailor-collar jacket and wide-legged pants

Summer is over, and the weather is really nice right now. But it’ll get colder so I think Sidra is going to need a new jacket. I found the fabric in my favourite store, Yuzawaya, and really like the colour and texture.

Apparently the 2 meters fabric is enough to make him a little suit. The jacket has sailor collar, two front pockets and coconut shell buttons. The pants have wide legs with turned-up hems, invisible front pockets and big back pockets. This is a casual jacket so I don’t put any lining (another reason for my laziness). Sidra wants to have labels on his home-made clothes, so I sew a little piece of embroidered ribbon in place.

As usual, Sidra is very happy with his new outfit (and two new birdies). The striped shirt he’s wearing in the pictures is a refashioned from my old T-shirt.

Birdie pattern is from spoolsewing.

PS: This outfit was featured in German Burda Modemagazin, 2/2009 edition.

    Hi Suzy,
    The pattern of the jacket is based on a pattern I found in a Japanese magazine, but I can't remember which one it was since the magazine was borrowed from a local library (I think).
    But I've seen several sailor collar shirt and jacket in another Japanese book: ISBN-10: 4579111230 / ISBN-13: 978-4579111237
    I've used this book to make a collarless jacket for my son. Hope that helps!

    Did you base this jacket on a pattern? I have been looking for a sailor collar pattern, but can't find one. Thanks!

    Thank you Suzy!
    Yes, Yuzawaya is like a craft convenience store, I can find everything there!
    By the way, thank you for your post about fabric shopping in Tokyo, that was how I found Marunan a couple of months ago ^.^

    The jacket and outfit is so lovely. I want to make a jacket like that for my little boy!

    When I lived in Tokyo Yuzawaya was my favourite store too :)
