*Note: Normally, we do not have you specify the size of the pattern you will ultimately sew. However, the pattern calls for a different length separating zipper depending on the size of the pattern. Therefore, we need to know the general range you will sew to include the proper notions.*

  • Wine Ventana Twill - Before choosing any other fabric for any of these boxes, I knew I wanted to use Ventana Twill. Though not water-resistant, it has a supple hand, a slight sheen, and a beautiful twill weave. And it's just the right weight for a simple jacket. It comes in a ton of colors too, but this ruby red was calling to me. It's rich and deeply saturated, and it will become an absolutely stunning jacket. The fabric can also be treated to become water resistant, if you so choose.
  • Curry Waxed Oxford - In my search for water resistant fabrics, I found that there are a lot that are very light and almost see-through and a lot that are very heavy and really meant for bags and awnings. This oxford, however, is just right. Medium weight, it's coated in wax to repel water, but it feels dry to the touch and has just the right amount of body for this jacket. In a deep yellow curry color, somewhere between brown and mustard, the fabric will become a truly unique anorak that will protect you through the years!
  • Charcoal Mix Waterproof Taffeta - If you want to make a light jacket that you can throw into a bag just in case, this is the fabric for you. The taffeta, coated with a waterproof layer, is light and thin, similar to what umbrellas are made of, so it will become a windbreaker type jacket that you want to throw on when you need protection from the weather but don't want to add too much warmth. The charcoal mix fabric is printed to look almost like a sweater knit, mottled with spots of gray and white. A perfect jacket for anyone on the go!

    Also in this box: Matching thread, 13 heavy duty snaps, a separating zipper, drawstring cording, 2 grommets, topstitching thread, and a sewing machine needle.
