The Arlo Track Jacket is the perfect lightweight layer you can wear on its own in the spring or fall or under your winter coat on colder days. It comes in 3 length options, is sized XS-7x, and is a unisex pattern as well! Practice your seaming techniques on knits and learn how to install a jacket zipper. If you are pretty comfortable with your serger and would like to use it for this class I am fine with that. Just let me know in advance! Otherwise, all sewing will be done on a regular sewing machine.
Intermediate or Advanced Beginner. Student should feel comfortable operating a sewing machine. This should not be the first garment you have sewn, however it can be your first time with knits, and your first time with a zipper.
Arlo Track Jacket Pattern available HERE from Firecracker
Fabric – choose your size and length and then select the amount of yardage needed. You can go with all one fabric, or color block. If your fabric doesn’t have enough stretch, you will need to use a rib knit for the cuff and hem band. Firecracker details out the types of suggested fabrics on their site, but if you have any questions please let me know!
*You must prewash/dry your fabric to preshrink before class
Separating zipper – choose as per your size. Zippers can be tricky to get the color and size desired. If needed, order a zipper from zipperstop.com (just give yourself enough time if you need to do this)
Thread – all-purpose, 2 small spools or one large.
*Please cut your paper pattern out on your size in advance of the class. If you plan to trace your pattern you must do that in advance of the first class. We will start by cutting the fabric together at the first class. If you have any questions about your size or other pattern cutting questions please let me know. Please note that I had found a printing error on my pattern where the M and L lines were both marked as a solid line. If you find this issue and have any confusion let me know.
