A Lumberjack for my lumberjack

Nov 6, 2021

I have been BEGGING Judy to design an adult version of the Lumberjack and she finally caved.  THANK GOODNESS too, because Louis is currently in the largest youth size and I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t sew him this pattern any longer.  Whewwww.  Dodged a bullet there!

Bennett is actually a great candidate for a pattern like this, because he’s my actual lumberjack.  He and his Dad go out and split wood basically any chance they get, so I’m always on the lookout for jackets that he can wear that fit the bill for such an activity.

And how perfect is this pattern for my very own, live-in lumberjack too?  It’s the bees knees.  He really likes his new jacket and I really enjoyed sewing it for him.  So it was a huge win in the McKinley household.

The Lumberjack pattern is one of THREE patterns that just released: Youth, V Figure, + Hourglass Figure.

  • Designed for woven (non-stretch) fabrics.
  • Oversized fit, with lots of room for layering.
  • Fully lined / unlined options.
  • Full length button placket closure.
  • Collar + Collar Stand / Hooded necklines.
  • Optional Chest and Inseam Pockets.
  • Traditional Woven Cuffs / Knit Cuffs.

For Bennett’s version, it’s lined with knit sleeves + cuffs, a knit hood, a chest pocket, and inseam pockets.  Perfect for layering, wood-splitting mobility, and cute husbands to wear.

A challenge of mine is getting to spice up sewing things for Bennett, without making them “too flashy” by his standards.  So simple things like cutting the pocket and the back yoke on the bias really adds to the fun of the sew, without making it something he wouldn’t wear.

Yes, Bennett shaved his beard off right before these photos.  And no, I’m not okay.

Thank you for asking!

But seriously, I’m such a fan of this pattern.  I am SO FREAKING OVER THE MOON that it’s available in adult sizes.  And I’m honestly looking forward to using it as a base to be able to make Bennett winter + fall jackets in the future…and maybe slimming down the silhouette to create some buttondowns for him as well.  The sky is the limit, right?
