Lumberjack in Leopard

Nov 7, 2021

Here are a couple quick facts about me:

  • My name is Katy.
  • I love to sew.
  • I love to sew jackets.
  • I love leopard print.

Alright.  Now that you’re caught up in the important things, let me tell you all about the leopard print Lumberjack jacket that I sewed for myself!!

I have been waiting (im)patiently for the adult version of the Lumberjack pattern to arrive.  Judy has been semi-promising it to me for yearsssss now.  And now that it’s here, it did not disappoint.  Not in the slightest.  It’s the best ever and I’m so excited to be making so many more jackets in the future for myself!  AHHH!!

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.

I’ve sewn the Hourglass Figure version for myself, with inseam pockets, fully lined, traditional woven cuffs, and a collar + collar stand.

Honestly, DO NOT be intimidated by the collar and cuffs.  I promise that they are so much easier than they seem.  And when you nail them (which you will) you’ll be SO PROUD of yourself for what you’ve been able to create.  I think that’s why I like sewing jackets and buttondowns.  There’s a level of precision that you have to live up to, and when you sew on that final button or topstitch that collar stand, it’s just the best feeling.

My jacket is fully lined, and I sewed the size that my measurements fit into.  There’s more than enough room, even with this minky fabric, to wear over your clothes comfortably.  If you’re someone who wants to line it with an even thicker fabric, that’s when you might want to size up.  But the minky was perfect in my sewing size, and I can wear looser clothing comfortably under it.

I’m eager to carve a little more time into my schedule so I can plan the jacket of my dreams.  I’ve been sewing Lumberjacks for Louis for FOREVER now, always using the pattern as a base and altering it to fit my vision.  I’m hoping that my next fall + winter jackets will be exclusively me-made.  Because that’s how I like things, ya know?
