If you have limited time to sew, it's especially rewarding to create a garment you can wear right away. Made from just a rectangle of fabric, this three-step jacket can be made in 30 minutes.
This pattern is incredibly flexible. The fabric length determines the finished garment's total arm span and the fabric width determines the torso length. The measurements are easy to manipulate for different sizes. A shorter, narrower rectangle will produce shorter sleeves and jacket length.
With such a simple design, the possibilities for fabric and embellishments are endless. The jacket shown here is unlined, and made from a chunky, colorful, woven silk and viscose fabric. For an easy embellishment, let the selvage become a trim across the back, neck, and shoulder, down the sleeve, and around the wrist. Hem the other three edges of the fabric. You can use appliqué, trapunto, patchwork, photo-transfer, blue printing, painting, stamping, stenciling, embroidery, or any embellishment technique to adorn this jacket.
The seams are lapped and topstitched together, so it's also easy to make a reversible jacket by lining the rectangle first. Since this jacket can be made to fit anyone, it makes a perfect gift. Thirty minutes isn't much of an investment for so many fashionable possibilities.
