Welcome to our Go To Jacket Sew Along!
Day 1 is reserved to purchasing the pattern, printing and cutting the size(s) you need. If you plan on sewing for yourself you can get the Women Go To Jacket or Men Go To Jacket here, if you’re sewing for your little one, youth GTJ can be purchased here and if you’re sewing for the family, grab the bundle!
This Sew Along will be hosted in the new M4M & P4P Sew Along group so be sure to join the group not only for the exclusive discount code available for the Go To Jacket patterns, fabric code but also to post your progress this week. Don’t forget to check out the blog daily for videos and tips!
Now that you purchased the pattern(s), print the size needed. In order to do that it is very important that you take your most accurate measurements.
You will need your waist, hips and chest measurements in order to choose the correct Go To Jacket size. Patterns for Pirates has an great blog post that gives you tips for accurately taking your measurements. You can read all about it here. If your measurements put you in a different size for chest/waist/hips be sure to check out our P4P University blog and grade to achieve the perfect fit.
Check out the day 1 video below and then leave a comment on the Day 1 picture of the Go To Jacket SAL album in the M4M & P4P Sew Along Group. Tell us who will receive the Go To Jacket you’re sewing. We don’t allow pictures of the pattern posted so this will be your day 1 check in.
