Grainline has just released the Tamarack Jacket

Grainline has just released its jacket for transcending the seasons

The Tamarack Jacket is a cosy, warm and stylish quilted jacket that's perfect for spring and autumn layering. There's two quilting designs included or if you prefer, you can design your own. It features an inner layer of cotton/wool batting so the drafts will be kept at bay. The jacket also features roomy welt pockets to keep both hands warm and belongings safe.

Techniques involved include straight seams, basic quilting, inserting a welt pocket, and applying bias binding so the sewing pattern is for set for advanced beginners. Make with mid-weight cottons, linens, chambray, and blends as this will be doubled and quilted to a batting so heavier fabrics aren't suitable. 

Priced at ¢12 for PDF pattern – available from Grainline.
