Sewing The Denim Jacket - The Fur Lined Pattern Hack


Hi Everyone! Welcome to Part 4 - For this final installment of Sewing The Denim Jacket we will introduce some pattern drafting skills and add the element of fur to create a "Fur-Lined Denim Jacket"! This style can work great for both boys and girls. The fur lining can be done with a classic faux fur, a soft fleece, or even a vibrant pop of color! The choice is yours, the possibilities are endless!

The tutorial videos are demonstrated on the 18" size pattern. If you want to modify one of the other sizes of the denim jacket, you can use this same technique with any of those sizes too!

In the video posted below, I walk you through the modifications to the Front Yoke and Inside Front pattern pieces and then show you the steps to take to add this modification into the existing Denim jacket Pattern Instructions.

The modification to this design are:

  • The Front Yoke and Inside Front will be modified and a third piece (The Front Facing) will be created. This new piece will be cut from the fur.
  • The Collar piece will be cut 1 denim cut 1 fur.
  • All other pieces will be cut from the denim fabric as directed.
  • Sew the Denim Jacket according to the instruction up to Step 23 (using either the faux or flatfelled seam style), then watch the video to see how to attach the facing and finish up the jacket.

Note - this style would be super cute made in a corduroy instead of denim!
