SOLD OUT! GARMENT SEWING: The Wiksten Haori Jacket


"It's fully lined so that all the seams are beautifully hidden while giving it the feeling of a lightweight blanket without batting. The construction of the jacket makes it reversible, so the options are endless..." — Jenny Gordy, Making Magazine



Wiksten Haori Jacket

This oversized Japanese-inspired jacket is functional, comfortable, and stylish, with large pockets and a fold-over collar. It’s fully lined & reversible and looks way more complicated to make than it actually is!

In this two-day sewing boot camp (with lots of snacks & coffee breaks), Lydia Rhyne, a garment sewing educator with over a decade of experience, will lead you through all the sewing basics, from sewing machine set-up, translating sewing patterns, to hemming. A bit of sewing experience is needed, and all machines and materials are provided (Although, you may choose to bring your own fabric). Go home sporting a beautiful & functional Haori style jacket complete with "I made this!" bragging rights.

We cut the yardage for your jacket, so when you click to sign up, you’ll be prompted to choose your fabric color.


Although the pattern includes three different lengths to choose from (short, mid & long)— we’ll be focusing on constructing the mid (below-hip length) jacket.



XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL.  Fits US Women's sizes 00-18.  Size XS sample is shown here on a size 0/2, 5'3" tall model.  The oversized nature of this garment makes it likely to fit sizes larger than shown on the size chart, but the effect will be more fitted than shown in the photos.

  • 3 yards lining fabric. Light to medium weight woven fabric such as chambray, cotton/linen blends, and quilting cotton.
