Spring is just around the corner and we'll be shedding the bulky winter coats for light weight jackets. Here's some jacket inspiration:

Isn't this a lovely little jacket? This is the Maila Couture Cloth Topper Jacket by Lafayette 148.  This little jacket has a funnel neckline with a single hook and eye closure, half sleeves, vented center back, an A-line silhouette, and made of polyester.  Price tag:  $568.00.  If you want a closer look, go to and search for the name.

The Retro Raglan Jacket pattern by Indygo Junction will give you a similar.  If you remove the button placket and move the edges to the center front along with shortening the sleeves, it will be a very close interpretation. 

This is the Open Front Linen Cocoon Coat by Eskandar  This coat is made from a semi-sheer linen/nylon blend fabric, has a V neckline, open front, and 3/4 length sleeves.  Price tag:  $940.00.   This can be found at Just search for the name.  I'm not so sure that you need a pattern for making this.  Peggy Sagers did a webcast on creating a cape which isn't too different than this coat. It looks like the difference in her cape and cocoon coat is the side seam.  You can see this information at, click on past webcasts, and click on Great EZ Fall Accessories. This information can also be found in the Third Season of Fit 2 Stitch.

This is the Fisher Project Terry Half-Sleeve Cape by Eileen Fisher.  This is a raw edge cape made from terry. This little cape looks very much like the one that Peggy Sager's makes in the reference webcast above.  Price tag:  $338.00.  If you want a closer look, head over to and search for the name.

There are many more jacket patterns over at eBay and Etsy.  Go check them out.

Happy Stitching!
