Sew the Cambria Duster
The drama of this jacket belies the ease in assembly. Designer and sewist Chelsea from Friday Pattern Company walks you through sewing the Cambria Duster, a shin-length, long-sleeved piece of outerwear featuring an oversized shawl collar and high side slits. The jacket closes with oversized waist ties and you'll cover your seams with bias tape, lending a tailored effect. Work in a lightweight linen for spring and summer-wear or a heavier denim or canvas as an ideal cold-weather layering piece.
