McCall’s 7100


McCall’s 7100

I’m very late to the bomber jacket trend, I know.  I have no idea why, because this is an easy pattern to make up. 


I made it slightly more difficult by using this embroidered loose-weave cotton and lining the whole thing (bag-lined it by machine).


Loose fit and raglan sleeves mean no fitting issues for me.




Easy Peasy

There are a ton of versions of this pattern that have been made up all over the internet, and they’re all gorgeous.  I’m pretty sure I’ll make another.  I could use a slight FBA for the next one, maybe 1/2 inch.  This fabric is very loose-weave embroidered cotton; the stitching probably won’t hold for long, and I need to be careful not to bump into anything, because the machine embroidery and eyelet work are already becoming a bit “fuzzy”.

Still, though, it’s getting some good wardrobe rotation right now, and lots of compliments!

Highly recommended!

  1. Smart bit of pattern matching on the fronts!
