Butterick 6370


I have several pictures of linen dusters tucked away on my pinterest boards.  This one is my favorite:

New Edy Jacket in linen £260 (over Ibiza Dress £260).  Nice stylish designs for…


It’s a single layer, loose-fitting beauty with a raw edge-type finish.  I chose Butterick 6370 and modified for single layer.



The pattern calls for 4 front pieces sewn so that the front and neck edges are clean finished.  That calls for a LOT of fabric and makes up a heavier coat than I wanted.  I modified the pattern for one piece fronts and finished the edges and seams differently.  It’s an easy pattern, no fitting required; just inseam pockets.  The sleeves were just narrow-hemmed and turned up for cuffs.


I finished the neck and front edges with 3 inch wide bias strips, mitering at the corners.  All the edges are “public” on these types collars, so clean finishing is necessary.  All inside seams are french seams.



Happy Labor Day in the USA!!
