Flynn jacket

Regular price $22.00

Garment details

The Flynn jacket is a loose-fitting jacket designed for woven fabrics. With two different styles, it is the perfect layering piece for autumn and winter.

Flynn features a wrap around collar, a high-low hem and in-seam pockets. All seams are finished with bias binding, for a beautiful and high-end finish. The Flynn jacket can be worn open, or closed discreetly with a hook and eye.

View A has a dropped shoulder and sleeve with a hem facing. It also features an inverted box-pleat in the back. The sleeves on View A are designed to be worn either straight or folded back, for a more casual look.

View B is sleeveless and features armhole facings and a flat back piece (no pleat). It has been designed to be worn over long sleeve tops and dresses. It works equally well worn over sleeveless tops and t-shirts. View B has a closer fit to View A, due to its sleeveless design and flat back piece.


The pattern is placed at a Level 2 on the In the Folds pattern skill scale, and was designed for advanced beginners who are ready for new challenges. Through careful drafting and beautiful finishing techniques, this pattern will have you feeling very proud of both the inside and outside of your new handmade jacket. It is a great entry level jacket as it does not require lining, and due to its oversized silhouette, it is easy to achieve a good fit.

By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: sewing curved seams, sewing pockets, setting in sleeves and bias bound seams.

      A really enjoyable sew and great jacket!

      I always feel like I learn something every time I sew one of Emily's patterns. This jacket looks so good, and I'm definitely planning another version that's not in denim (so that I can wear it to work every day).

      I've got a 47" bust and 56" hip and I made a size i and it was perfect.


      I love the interesting seam lines of the Flynn Jacket and the way the biased seams look so polished!
      I would call myself a confident beginner and I found this pattern is easy to follow. The instructions are very detailed with clear diagrams. A+ Pattern!

      The Flynn Jacket has some seriously awesome design lines and was a dream to sew. The instructions were like a sewing lesson... they covered absolutely everything. The bounds seams ensure the jacket is just as beautiful on the inside as the outside... sure they take some time, but I found them to be hugely satisfying. I also hand-stitched the facing down... this slow sewing is rather addictive. This was my first time sewing and In The Folds pattern and it exceeded expectations.
