My daughter loves this jacket! It’s warm enough to keep the chill out in the morning but thin enough that she doesn’t start to overheat when she gets moving running around. The zipper is so much easier for her to do up on her own compared to buttons which is absolutely perfect for her independent streak. I absolutely love how neat and clean it looks if you line it!
Kellie Jewell –
Really happy with how this jacket turned out. My first time doing welted pockets, the instructions were easy to follow. As a confident beginner I found some of this sew a challenge but trust in the pattern and it works out. Will lengthen the sleeves next time or add a longer cuff.
Loraine Wilkinson –
Lovely fitting jacket although a few tricky sections need to read thoroughly to achieve the best results
Adelle Pears –
This jacket came together really nicely. I used ribbing for the bands and collar and switched the pockets for the ones from the Riley vest with zips. I also used the same pattern for the lining which potentially could make it reversible with the right zip. It’s a lovely sew with loads of potential for hacking!
Jill Cook –
A very nice pattern and one I will be making more of in the future. Not hard to make but a little tricky at first to get the bottom band just right.
Katie Weatherly –
I enjoyed this sew very much. I feel my end product looks very professional.
Adele Pears –
This is a lovely pattern! I adapted it to use ribbing instead of elastic and changed the pockets to the zipped ones from the Riley vest. I love how it’s turned out! This will get so much use and I’m sure I’ll be making lots more!
Frieda Flavianu –
Such a unique Raglan Design Jacket. The construction methods is simple and straight forward for the lined version and moderate for the unlined version. It fits great and I will be making more of these.
Karen Kaye Manalo –
“This is such a lovely pattern and I really love it. Absolutely amazing.
Having never sewn a jacket before, I was really excited to try and make this and I was so thrilled on how it turned out. I made lined option in medium size using cotton poplin. Fit for me was just about perfect.
I’ll definitely make this jacket again.”
Kelly Tuttle –
Beautiful little jacket! Although several steps seem a little scary, the instructions are detailed enough to get you through. Now all my kids want one, and I want one for myself too!
Lynda Tomalin –
“I loved this pattern. I’ve always wanted a bomber and never found any I liked in store. I love that there’s both lined and unlined options (options are always good!)
I find the sleeves a little short and it a smidgen tight across the shoulders (but these are most likely just my body).
It was a fun sew, with little bits of challenge to keep it interesting. The wide variety of fabric options, sew options and having patterns for the whole family is just awesome 😁
I struggled a lot with the bottom band. But I think a lot of this was due to my fabric spontaneously starting to fray madly halfway through”
Amy Kaczenski –
This pattern was the most challenging sew I’ve done in a long time. It took me hours to complete and I made many mistakes along the way, BUT it is the absolute cutest jacket I’ve ever made! I hope to make another and maybe some for my kids!
Roeshell McNelis –
This was probably the most difficult thing I have ever sewn. But the end result was satisfying. so it was worth it.
Amy Kosandiak –
I love the versatility of this jacket depending on your fabric choice – make it in super durable canvas or waterproof fabric for a utilitarian jacket, a lightweight sporty fabric for an activewear layer on cooler days, or florals, lace and metallics for something a bit special. I did mine in peachskin for a bright, sporty statement piece that’s great for that ‘in between’ weather when it could be warm or it could start raining any minute!
Laura Walker –
The Bomber Jacket is an addictive pattern! Once you make yourself one, you’ll want to make one for everyone!!!
Connie Lusto –
I was a little intimidated by this pattern at first, but I’m very glad I tried it. The instructions are extremely thorough and detailed, and I’m SO happy with how it turned out! I made an unlined version without pockets for my first one, and now that I’ve gone through the process once, I’m excited to try out the other options for my next one!
Deb Sendelbach –
I’ve always wanted a suede Bomber Jacket, and thanks to RP I now have the best one ever. As always RP has great directions to help you through each step. I’ll be making more for sure.
Kelle Lujan –
I love making jackets because they seem so impressive. This bomber jacket is no exception! The fully lined version ends up so nice on the inside that I was able to make mine reversible just by adding a reversible zipper. My daughter says it is super comfy to wear. Love the new easy-to-assemble no-trim pages!
Gabz Jefferson –
This bomber jacket is a well drafted pattern. I enjoyed sewing it. The insructions are as clear as crystal.
Julie Educate-Espinosa –
This pattern will challenge you. It will test your patience and your skills. Is it worth it? Yes! Of course! Is it a pattern you will make over and over again? For the Fall and Spring, yes!
Sharon Courtney –
A superb pattern to create your own bomber jacket, options to fully line or not and add neat welt pockets. A detailed sew which gives a great result. The construction of the lined version is pure magic!
Jennifer Schonhaar –
“I purposely picked this pattern to challenge myself on two counts – welt pockets and lining. I was challenged in a good way. The pockets are easy once you understand how they work. The lining only challenged me with joining the sleeves to the lining. I had to watch a YouTube video to understand what the pictures were showing.
One thing that would have helped with the pockets and joining the bottom band would be to have different fabrics used so the pictures, I feel, would be easier to understand. ie. Use a different fabric for the pocket and bottom band than is used for the main jacket.
Otherwise I enjoyed this pattern and can totally see myself using it again especially because one of my daughters is hinting for one of her own.”
Salome Goncalves –
This jacket looks great and it’s a relatively easy sew (all straightforward except for a few details). It was my first time sewing welt pockets!! The waistband was a bit of a headache, but I’m glad I didn’t give up 😀
Mireille Ribiere –
It was a lot of work and hard sometimes but the outcome is so nice i love it
Jenna Page –
“The kids bomber jacket is a great pattern! I loved the technique for adding the waist band, it gave the jacket a very professional finish. i managed to make one for each of my boys, they love their matching jackets that wouldn’t usually be possible with store bought items due to their age difference 🙂
Also being available in a ladies and men’s version there’s the opportunity for the whole family to match!! “
June Chance Butchee –
Now you can make your own Bomber Jacket with the excellent instructions provided by Rebecca Page Patterns. There is even a video tutorial. It takes a little time but is well worth the effort.
Luana Furlanetto –
I have to admit, this wasn’t the easiest sew. The collar was particularly tricky for me. Nevertheless the result is AMAZING. I really love it!!
Deb Carpenter –
“Another great up-to-date pattern from Rebecca Page! The instructions were challenging at times, the lined version is not for the faint hearted, but a truly fabulous garment when complete. I particularly like the fact that the pattern pieces fitted together perfectly during construction – the collar is absolute perfection to stitch!
The lined version will leave you with absolutely no raw edges even if you don’t have a serger or overlocker.
Would I make this again? Definitely! It’s a classic! “
Jennifer Lichak –
This jacket will add so much to your wardrobe. Line it to add warmth, use faux leather to make it dressy, top with lace to make it fancy! Whatever you need this raglan style jacket is a great pattern to add to your pdf library.
Donna Lowe –
This is a lovely pattern and the end product is great. My daughter wouldn’t take it off.
Alieke Enders –
What a lovely and versatile pattern! Learned some new tricks, but with the detailed instructions and pictures it was easy to learn!
My daughter love her jacket and I think a few will follow!
Tania Vervaeke –
The Child’s Bomber was a very challenging pattern. I was very scared to begin, but I’m glad I finished it, because my girl loves how it turned out.
Julie Educate-Espinosa –
This is the best fall jacket. People will look at this jacket and their jaw will be to the floor. It is a great challenge and you will learn a lot!
Taiko Karen Rai –
Such a beautiful jacket pattern. I made the lined version and it is so put together, it could be reversible! I will definitely be making this again.
Jenni Elizabeth Early –
Love! Love! Love! This jacket is so much fun to sew and to wear. And it’s like magic how it comes together 🙂 I will make many more of these!
Grace Elliott –
This is such a fun, satisfying sew! I sewed my toddler daughter one in fleece, and she put it on and loved it right away.
Jemma Tredinnick –
This was a tricky sew because of the welt pockets and the lining. However it does make a beautiful lined jacket with lovely neat pockets. I sewed the small size and shortened the sleeves (maybe a little too much!) in an African print cotton and the fit was really good. I’ll definitely be making this again as my daughter claimed it immediately!
Alieke Enders –
What a nice pattern to make! Because the jacket is lined, the end result looks very professional. I hadn’t made the welt pockets before, but thanks to the clear instructions, making them was no problem.
Charlene Lee –
This pattern is a nice pattern for all ages, since it can be unlined or lined. Nice finish to the jacket make it look like a bought jacket. Concise directions help to make this an easier to sew than expected. Love the fact that you are taught to do the french seams for the unlined version. The pattern is easily put together and ready quickly.
Nali Nali –
This Bomber Jacket is a must-have! Two versions, lined and unlined. Depending on the fabric choice and the weather, both look amazing! I made mine using mid-weight cotton and lined with contrasting light- weight cotton inside. Sewn on additional embroidery patches and a Kingston jacket pocket for added fun (these are not part of the design).
Tiina Norrkniivilä –
A classic model that can be done in many variations depending on the choice of fabric. If you choose to try it in knits, even if it’s intended for woven, I would recommend using interfacing to make the sewing of the zipper easier.
Tiffany Amos –
I am completely in love with this jacket and will make one for the entire family . Fully lined and gorgeous it is . I always learn something new with each Rp pattern. Thank you!
Suzi Nasoor –
Love all the options n professional finish..n the result is just phenomenal
Bonnie Riley –
This was a bit of a challenge, but I soldiered onward and it turned out super cute. I made the lined version.
Kainui Paet Nihipai –
I enjoyed sewing these jackets! I had a hard time finding an appropriate zipper locally & had to order online. I read the instructions for the optional welt pockets & the waist band a handful of times so that when I came time to sew those parts, I could take my time & do my best. I think they turned out great! The length is a bit shorter than preferred & the sizes seem to be true to fit so I would suggest making 1-2 sizes bigger to have some extra space.
Angela Kypreos –
A Bomber Jacket for me is a wardrobe essential and this pattern has filled that void. It’s funky and practical and results in a perfect jacket that goes with everything. The details included are all those you will find in ready to wear, with great instructions to guide you through construction.
