The Tabula Rasa Jacket is a hip length jacket with a natural shoulder line and square armhole in sizes XS-3XL. The pattern allows the sewer to customize the fit with a choice between AB and CD cup fronts and between a straight and flared side panel. The jacket is finished with a kimono-style band that can be left open or secured with closures.
Detailed instructions aid the sewer in making additional fitting adjustments, if needed, on a mock-up and transferring those adjustments to the paper pattern. Additional fitting help is available on our Jacket Help page, in our dowloadable fitting guide, Common Fitting Adjustments for the Tabula Rasa Jacket, and in Video Tutorials. The instruction book includes design tips and inspiration for creating your unique artful jacket. Once fitted, this versatile pattern can be used to make jackets in all kinds of fabrics for all seasons and all occasions.
