Each of our patterns calls on a unique set of sewing skills. Haven't ever done one of these things before? Don't worry. We'll walk you through it, step by step.
After successfully sewing this pattern, you will have developed the following skills: bias bound seams, buttonholes, collar, patch pockets, and raglan sleeves.
Medium-weight woven fabrics like canvas, corduroy, twill, denim, and coated (raincoat) cottons.
Coordinating thread, light- to medium-weight fusible interfacing (match your fabric with the appropriate weight of interfacing), eight 3/4" buttons. For finishing the seam allowances: 1/2 yard of lightweight fabric like quilting cotton, broadcloth, or shirting for bias binding or 2 packages of 7/8" single-fold bias tape/binding (both are optional).
