Ladies Tailored Jacket Sewing Pattern

Tara, meaning “where the kings meet” in Irish, is a place of rocky hills and the name of the plantation in Gone with the Wind; the name is beautifully poetic and brings to mind undulating waves of windswept hills. This ladies tailored jacket sewing pattern is a beautiful creation, fit for royalty, and features its very own version of rolling waves: the frill added to the front lapel.

Tara: More Than Just a Blazer

This Tara is so much more than just a blazer for women. She is exquisitely tailored and lined, with a nipped in waist and tie belt, and incredibly feminine visual interest.

Tara can be dressed up with a beautiful skirt or dress, or worn casual with jeans. She is an heirloom quality piece to complete and complement any outfit!

  1. Beth Partain

    I really like how this coat turned out. Sizing was spot on. I am the lucky girl who is exactly 5’6″.

  2. Sheila Hlushak

    If you’ve been wondering how your sewing skills are processing, then this is the pattern for you. Tara is expertly drafted with many pieces and different skills needed to complete the jacket. Notched collar, front frill, facing, lining and sleeve vents make this a really fun sew. The many steps explained in detail with lots of fitting advice and pictures, will lead you to the perfect fitting jacket, you will be comfortable in and proud to wear as a “me made”.

  3. Emily Schimelfenyg

    A beautifully designed woven pattern. The tutorial is so helpful, it is clear and takes you step-by-step for a professionally finished final product

  4. Chubs Pineda

    This blazer is stunning! I’m not going to lie, this took me hours, but the end result is incredible and I’m over the moon that I able to sew something so professional. The tutorial is lengthy and easy to follow and gives you clear instructions, so don’t feel intimidated.

  5. Anusha

    Well drafted tailored jacket! I love the lapel it is very different.
    Instructions are detailed with photos.

  6. Deborah Ellenden

    Amazing jacket with flattering fit. Can be made into both a formal and informal jacket with different fabric choice. Perfect for a wardrobe builder.

  7. Ruth Taylor

    A truly versatile jacket that works equally well when styled with jeans and boots as it does with a party dress and heels. It was a very satisfying pattern to sew with a professional looking finished garment. Love it!

  8. Alyssa Finn

    This pattern is well worth the challenge! I am a seasoned seamstress and learned a couple new techniques while making my own Tara – the outcome was lovely!

  9. Kirsten Welch

    This is another great pattern! I’ve never made a fitted jacket before and enjoyed the detailed instructions. The jacket is so well made and has such fun, unique features, you will have to make several for yourself!
