New Look 6028
The New Look sewing pattern is a pattern for a lined jacket with princess lines and one-piece sleeves. The jacket is suitable for the fabrics: lightweight demin, pique, seersucker, twill, lightweight wool, wool blends, jacquards, brocade, satin, linen and linen blends. You will have a lot of options if you want to choose your favorite fabric! The jacket is great for the summer as well as for the winter.
Sewing level: easy
The sewing pattern is suitable for the novice seamstress. We agree. The sewing pattern has no pitfalls or unpleasant surprises.
We used this sewing pattern for our project; what to do with remnants of fabric. We had a few fabric leftovers of lightweight wool and bouclé wool. The colors matched well and so we searched or a sewing pattern with princess lines, two-piece sleeves, an unlined jacket and especially a short jacket.
New Look 6028 came in a nice direction, although the jacket is lined and the sleeves consist of one part. With a little creativity, we managed to make the jacket, unlined, from the fabric remnants.
New Look 6028 is also very suitable for making one type of fabric with a nice lining. We especially like version A. It is a typical classic Chanel-style jacket, hangs open and is finished with beautiful fringes and edges.
Not such a great benefits:
New Look 6028 is a wonderful basic pattern. It is really a short jacket and looks especially great for summertime. The jacket can also be made in Bouclé fabrics. A closure at the front, instead of hanging open, would fit better.
