We recently took a short trip to New Zealand and the next few posts will be about the things I’ve made that were debuted there. Starting with the famed Tessuti Sydney Jacket! It is a draped jacket with raw edges and exposed seams, famous to be easy-to-wear and not too complicated to sew. And it sure looks effectively – it has an effortless, relaxed vibe to it.
Pattern:Tessuti Patterns – “Sydney Jacket”. It is labelled as for intermediate to advanced sewing level.
Size made:Included was Size Petite to Extra Large. I made the petite size (B80cm, W67cm, H89cm).

Hamilton, New Zealand
That was a satisfying make! Also, I seldom get to wear proper coats in our mild Queensland winters back in Australia, so a drapey, throw-on kind of coatigan style outerwear is perfect. I think making it in a scuba is even better for me, perhaps I will make it again some time.
