Sew Over It - Dorothy Jacket Pattern

The Dorothy Jacket is an easy-fitting utility jacket with a convertible collar and simple press stud fastenings. It features roomy front patch pockets with plenty of space for all of your essentials, as well as stylish, faux chest pockets.

The fabulous drawstring waist and hip-length design is super flattering whilst being oh-so comfy to wear.

With more than a nod towards the classic military jacket, we named the Dorothy Jacket after journalist Dorothy Lawrence. Dorothy secretly posed as a male soldier during World War 1, making her the only known English woman on the front line.
