Islander Giveaway and $27 Jacket Class SaleBy DianeSev on 3/18/13 12:47 PM

Islander Sewing Systems 218 Jacket Express


We haven’t had a giveaway in awhile, so when we got a copy of Islander’s newest pattern, we thought, “Members will love this.  It’s perfect for a giveaway.  Let’s do it!”

This is what Islander has to say about the new pattern:

“Jacket Express is a grown-up version of the blue jean jacket, but it’s not just for denim!  The hemline has been dropped and rounded to flatter all figure types.  Seams are finished with optional double topstitching for the classic sportswear look. Instructions for the Jacket Express are created for faster construction by using a unique, out-of-traditional construction order and simple ready-to-wear techniques.”

Suggested Fabrics:  Jacket weight cottons such as light to medium weight denim or twill are recommended.  Also, linen/cotton blends, corduroy and other similar weights are appropriate.
