Lined Shacket

I wear the Thai-Shacket I made using Simplicity 1328 quite often.  I like the idea of dressing in layers, so a shirt-jacket(shacket) works well for me.  Since I knew this Simplicity pattern fit me using the small size with two inches added to the sleeves, I decided to use it for this shacket.  The difference is I put a lining in this one and welt pockets.

Shacket Pattern

My Thai Shacket,  February 2015

I used some gray cotton herringbone material I bought from Joann's and a gray polyester lining I had in my stash.

I watched the same video I used for instructions on welt pockets for a previous project to refresh my memory.

I wasn't sure how to do the lining, so I simply made the shacket, less the collar, and sewed it in with a 1/4" seam.  Once I sewed in the lining, I added the collar, button placket, and cuffs to finish it.

White Sewmaster 611 used for this shacket

I have worn this several times and enjoy it during these cool spring days.

My next project is a jacket using a Kwik Sew pattern.

Thanks for stopping.


  1. Super job! I'm sure you're enjoying the lining. It can make such a huge difference. I bet you'll be lining more and more of your makes after this.

  2. The jacket picture on the pattern looks really wide. Your jacket looks great! Did you have to alter the pattern?

    1. I only altered the sleeve length. Everything else was by the pattern.

  3. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best things you've done. Great job. The fit is perfect, as are the fabric choices. I'll be looking for this pattern.

    AND, I love the Sewmaster. Such a cool design. I bet it's a beast!
