Joy Jacket

Originally released alongside the Sewing Society Kit in May 2022, this video contains exclusive hints and tips for making the Chalk and Notch Joy Jacket.

This video is perfect if you already own a copy of the Joy sewing pattern and the supplies to make it but would like some helpful guidance on sewing it up!

This video doesn't replace the instructions that come with the pattern, instead Lauren shares her personal hints and tips that she finds useful to help you make a lovely garment.

The video has over 45 minutes of footage, sectioned out with time stamps/chapters for easy reference and navigation.

The key construction steps are covered, including pre-washing advice, cutting out tips, how to adapt the pattern to make a cropped version and add an option waist line drawstring, how to work with stretch interfacing, how to shorten a metal toothed zip, how to insert and open-ended zip, how to get a neat finish with the top stitching in the correct place and much more!

Once you have placed your order, the video link will be included in your order confirmation email. The Joy Jacket sewing pattern is available through our website (see below).
