Wow! Thank you for putting in the time it takes to illustrate and write out instructions. I’ve enjoyed the series.

I don’t know if DH would wear a bomber jacket or where I’d source ribbing, but I would really enjoy working with your industrial pattern, especially since it has proper armholes and sleeve caps. You rock!

A few years ago I took a series of flat-pattern and draping classes as a mental health escape from the critical care nursing job, and I choose a bomber jacket as my menswear project. I patterned it after an old photo of a WWII French bomber jacket and your illustrations reminded me of the fun project. My project’s final pattern pales (I left out the facings & other stuff) compared to yours.
I am really enjoying the evolution of this tutorial- thank you Kathleen for your excellent work here.

I hope you do make the pattern for sale. I would love to make this for my husband. It will be nice to finally see a full production pattern. It would be nice to take into a sewing class (If I ever take one again) and show them… I cannot believe some of the things they (the teachers) actually tell the students.

What a gift! I’m one of the home sewers, and I’ve been changing my sewing methods to those presented here and in the forum. I’m making a couple of simple garments, and just last night I worked out the order of assembling the pieces.

The description of the process for this jacket is quite an an education. I’d sure buy the pattern for all the reasons that you listed. And, as Marianne states above, it would be a novel experience to make something that I know will come together properly so that I can clearly see how and where the “operator errors” are introduced.

I am looking forward to trying this pattern. There is definitely a need for well designed men’s patterns.
