New Pattern Release: La Paz Jacket
Woot! The La Paz Jacket sewing pattern is finally in the shop today! This jacket pattern is the product of my blood, sweat and tear, and I cannot be more proud how it turned out.
For this week only, the La Paz Jacket pattern is 20% off. The volume discount still applies! Remember to check out other patterns while you are at it: spend $20 or more, get 15% off your entire cart; spend $30 or more, get 20% off your entire cart!
The La Paz Jacket is the embodiment of all the features I love in a knit jacket. It has a dart underneath the lapel (which is frequently seen in ready-to-wear jackets, but not so much in sewing patterns), so that the lapels lay nicely. It has two lovely double-welt pockets with flaps (it’s not as difficult as you might expect). The functional sleeve vents have a rounded corner and diagonal buttonhole. You just have to sew it to truly appreciate all the details in it. In the La Paz Jacket, I did not sacrifice details for the sake of dumbing down the sewing; it has the bell and whistles, and you will be so proud of producing such an exquisite garment that you will treasure for a long time. This is a classic-looking jacket that is surprisingly comfy (because it’s knit), and it is an essential part of every lady’s wardrobe.

Do you recommend a woven bias binding or stretch? And how much do you recommend?
Woven bias tape works well; you don’t need stretch binding. 2.5 yards or 2.3 meter will be sufficient.
Gorgeous jacket. Well done, Ladies! Would it be possible to make it in Harris Tweed, or would you have to make it in a larger size, because there would be less give in the fabric?
Hi! The jacket is designed for fabric with a touch of stretch, so Harris Tweed would result in a jacket too small.
Can this be made with a lining instead of the finished Hong Kong seams?
Hi Julie, you will have to draft the front lining piece out of the front/front facing piece. Basically you will have to know enough to do that.
Has anyone tried this with a stretch woven? Such as a denim? I think it might look great!!
Yes! The teal one (with the HK finish) is a stretch woven.
Awesome!! That has the prettiest insides, too!
I just bought the pattern and I am so excited to try it out . I have DDD cup boobs and doing extreme amount of FBA takes out the fun of sewing . I am so glad there is someone who design patterns for bustier women.
Anyway , I am wondering about the fabric requirement . Does it has to be knit or stretch woven could work ? An exactly what amount of stretch should the fabric have ? 10% or 25% or more ?
Hi Otis, Thank you for reaching out. For the La Paz, you can use fabric with stretch closet to 10%.
Kennis, this looks absolutely PERFECT. As you say, every feature that I have ever wanted in a knit blazer pattern is there, plus probably some I never even thought of. All the tester versions are stunning. I am super excited!
Just what I need – a smart, stretchy jacket for teaching. I’m very excited to be able to make my own as I’ve had zero success finding a RTW jacket to fit my D cup bust and long torso.

This jacket is just what I’ve been looking for. I can wear it to the office, and be comfy because its a knit. I’m going to buy it immediately.
What a beautiful jacket! I can’t wait to try this pattern!
Hope to see your version very soon!
Omgoodness! Allllll the heart eyes, Kennis! And all these tester makes are so lovely!
I can’t agree with you more! All of them are so lovely!
