A Summer Stacker

Posted by

It’ll come as no surprise to regular readers that I like to repeat my favourite patterns. I love to try out a pattern with 2 or 3 completely different fabrics, resulting in a new garment that is unrecognisable from the first.

This is my Summer Stacker Jacket by Papercut Patterns.

I’ve worn my previous Stacker most days to the office since my return 6 weeks ago.

This deadstock fabric, a textured woven jacquard in turquoise, was provided for free in lieu of a blog post for Minerva. It reminds me of a Coco Chanel type of jacket fabric but in polyester. It washed, sewed and pressed beautifully.

The Stacker is a jacket with a cropped boxy fit with a choice of flapped in-seam pockets or oversized patch pockets. It is fully lined and features a drop shoulder and a classic collar.

I was in between sizes in the bust but again sized down. A size 3 as opposed to a size 4.

Again, I’ve not touched the jacket length from the pattern pieces. I like the boxy fit.

I bought the lovely square blue buttons from Minerva

It is fully lined. The instructions are pretty good but you’d need a bit of experience, I think, to completely grasp every step.

I’ve used this Lady McElroy Mercedes viscose twill lining from Minerva in sage. I matches beautifully with the main fabric.

I think it’ll look equally as good with my jeans.

It’s my new favourite.

Love, Lucie xx

  1. It’s beautiful! And so nicely finished inside, well done. Do you think the fabric might be suitable for trousers? Or do you think it would be too thick? Thank you for sharing.

      1. Thank you for replying! A pencil skirt was my first thought but I have too many that I never wear, they just don’t suit my lifestyle right now. It’s not like I need anymore fabric anyway, I’ve already had one delivery from Minerva this week 😂
