The Christine Jonson Moto Jacket 1006 is the classic cool-girl jacket designed for stretch fabrics. The Moto features classic asymmetrical zipper, collar, shaped body and single piece sleeve. This jacket is designed so a beginner sewist can tackle a cool-jacket project without having sewn jackets before. You can make it in traditional black, or go upscale in burgundy, add a punch of color with coral or pale blue or even try gray and print stable knit fabrics for fun.
The Sew Along and Tutorial will take you through the process of sewing your own Moto jacket. We recommend sewing it in 4-way Ponte di Roma “Ponte” knit fabric. This jacket can also be made in a stretch wool, stretch denim, cotton Lycra or stretch double-knit fabric. Any stable, stretchy, jacket-weight fabric can be used, but your FIRST Moto should be made in a ponte knit.
The Moto Jacket sew along will be in four parts, from fabric and size selection to styling and wearing.
