Introducing our first jacket pattern. I originally made this jacket 3 years ago and I've had so many requests about my methods that I decided it is time to create the pattern: Paganoonoo Boro Jean Jacket. Our Most Popular re-pinned Pinterest Design !!
The classic cut and materials makes this a truly unisex garment with timeless appeal. Made with a waffle fabric kimono style robe, 5 to 6 denim jeans various shades, and a closure from a leather belt with buckle closure (optional).
The thing that is amazing, even magical about this jacket is that it looks good on such a wide variety of people. It was inspired by Japanese Boro clothing. I find the utilitarian nature of the garments appealing and the patchwork and repair process fascinating. I really love the subtle color blocking from the different shades of the jeans. Another plus building upon the robe is the jacket is self-lined.
Paganoonoo's step-by-step illustrated upcycling instructions walk you through design choices as well as specific construction techniques. I you love sashiko or boro stitching this jacket is the perfect canvas. It can also be made with standard features:
Upcycling our existing clothes into new fashions is good for the planet, and really great on the budget!!
With upcycling, there is no need to print, cut out and tape together PATTERN PIECES. The starting materials are 3D garments, so instead the "pattern" is instructions and illustrations that define exactly what and where to cut (disassemble) and how to reassemble the pieces.
Available in both Hard Copy $20 (Etsy only) and Digital $16 versions.
