How to make the Manhattan jacket?

Here is the masterpiece of the Empire State Of Fauve collection: the Manhattan jacket pattern. This iconic piece of women's clothing joins the Maison Fauve range of sewing patterns for our greatest pleasure!

The cut is just perfect, whether it's the length, the bend work of the arrow collar with its calculated measurements (because Manhattan is not as classic as it seems). Slipped on nonchalantly open over a teeshirt with faded denim, in a perfect suit worn closed with the Brooklyn trousers, or ultra-fashionable belted over a beautiful flowing dress, Manhattan has it all.

In order to vary the level of difficulty, we offer 2 pocket finishes: patch pockets with flaps or welt pockets with flaps. And for those of you who want to make a statement, you can also sew a welt pocket on the lining of the jacket... A jacket essential!

For this video and to make the back and front of the garment visible, it's sewn in a Forest corduroy fabric and we used our navy blue cupro lining fabric for the sleeves along with the midnight blue Lemon viscose fabric for the body of the lining. It's also a fantastic in a thinner, suit-like fabric like our Jazz cotton jacquard!

Happy sewing!


I don’t speak french but I still found this helpful with the close ups etc. Thank you!
