Fabric and pattern reviews for Butterick Jacket 5683?
Has anyone tried this pattern yet? Must it be pre-quilted fabric?

Hi everyone,

This pattern is on sale for the next couple of days:

http://butterick.mccall.com/b5683-products-14755.php?page_id=872

Looks cute, and the shape I was looking for, and claims to be "easy" (also important). But I'm curious that the fabric recommendation for the view I want is only "double-sided pre-quilted fabric."

Has anyone tried this pattern? Any thoughts on other fabrics that might work?

TIA for your thoughts!

Hope no one minds me bumping this thread after a year ;).

So, has anyone attempted this pattern yet? If so, any major problems?

Quilted fabric sounds good after all -- one reason I am revisiting this pattern -- but the ones I have liked so far are pricey, so I don't want to waste them!

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

I think you could make it out of any suitably heavy fabric. A heavy, non-stretchy fleece would probably be nice, too.

I *think* I have this in my pattern stash; I'll take a look when I get home. I'm pretty sure that the reason they call for a pre-quilted fabric is that there's no linings or facings (the pattern info on the Butterick site says that the neck and armholes are finished with bias tape).

Yeah, fleece doesn't require linings or facings either, which is nice.

I have a RTW jacket from double-faced quilted faux suede/shearling fleece that is fantabulous. Every time I wear it, I wonder where on Earth they found the fabric! It's microsuede on one side, short pile white microterry fleece on the other... wonderfully warm without being bulky. There is no lining, but the edges and seams are bound with self (?) binding--or at least a coordinating microsuede. One thing I have noticed... the (on-seam) pockets are half self fabric and half lining fabric--which don't play well together at all. The lining fabric is too lightweight and keeps fraying/ripping through the binding. But I suppose it definitely keeps the bulk at the pocket area down, for whatever that's worth.

I made view B in a black ponte knit from EOS. I added a knit mesh lining...serged at the edges, treating the double layer as one fabric.
The pattern is super easy.

This is encouraging. I have the pattern in my stash, but haven't tried it yet. I'm hoping to use a silk with flannel on the inside, light decorative stitches for the "quilting," and then either serging edges or doing something funky/decorative with it. Haven't thought it out all the way yet... but glad to know it's worked out for someone else in something other than pre-quilted!
