How To Style And Wear Your Shaket Pattern
Here are some tips on how to wear an oversized shirt-jacket that's comfortable and lightweight for days when the weather can't make up its mind.
- With a hoodie and flared jeans
We've been wearing hoodies and jeans since we were old enough to dress ourselves.. It's a go-to look that can be thrown together even on the laziest of days. But a shacket would add an elevated, cozy vibe if you happen to be visiting somewhere extra chilly.
- With a dress
Adding chunky knee-high rain boots to a breezy dress makes a longline shacket look seriously chic.
- With a matching skirt and boots
If you want to make a statement, go for a two-piece set in a loud print. Then just add your favorite pair of knee-high boots.

How much fabric do you need for your diy pattern?
Keep in mind: the amount of fabric necessary depends on the width of your material. All sizes are based on a standard fabric width of 140-150cm, so please double-check the table below for both size and fabric requirements before beginning your project. If you're working with a different kind of cloth (say, stripes or plaids), you'll need to adjust how the pieces fit together so that it utilizes the available width you have.
Check your shrinkage!
Important! Before cutting, check the contraction of your chosen fabric. To do this, iron steam the raw material at its maximum heat recommendation. This will ensure that your finished garment will remain true to its sewn size and won't shrink after first washing. The best way to account for any potential shrinkage is to buy 5% more than your project requires.
