IndieSew Lonetree Jacket


IndieSew Lonetree Jacket made from IndieSew kit

Can you love a garment the entire time you are making the garment?  Well, that was my experience while working on my Lonetree Jacket
This Lonetree Jacket is the creation of Allie Olson, cpo-founder of IndieSew.  In fact, it is her first pattern and she knocked it out to the park.  The description of this jacket, "A utility jacket or vest with a collar, facings, and an optional lined hood" and the sizes are XS to XXXXL.  My measurement fell between Medium and Large and I went with the Large.

This year started off with learning a new accounting software system at work.  I really find it very fascinating, how the programmers wrote the system and all the requirements needed by the user.  The programmers  thought of everything, ease of use, how to import all the information from the old system and all the requirements needed to make the accounting package work so smoothly.  Why am I mentioning this?  Well, while making this jacket my thoughts went to the pattern and instructions.  Allie thought of everything.

Allie even includes the "Sew Your Own" label.  I had to include both of them.

And she wrote excellent instructions and I found them so easy to follow.  This pattern does take some time to make the jacket.  The first night I taped the PDF pattern together, next night I cut out the fabric, another night of sewing and then about 4 hours on Saturday.  The time invested into this Utility Jacket is so worth it, the end results are stunning.


I loved every step of making this jacket and the fabric was perfect.  I was so fortunate to get one of the kits in the IndieSew Store (sorry sold out) but they included everything.

So keep your eyes open for this kit, it really made the sewing process easy.  No hunting for cord stops and the perfect color zipper!

I love to sew, always have and always will.  My mind races with the possibilities my sewing machine and I can create with great patterns and beautiful fabric.  I am so grateful for the sewing community and their sharing of projects and love of this craft.  So thanks to all of you for sharing your sewing and love of sewing, I deeply appreciate it.
