If you haven’t noticed by now, I love to sew my patterns in as many different fabrics as possible. No one wants to buy a pattern that is limited to one fabric, or at least I definitely do not. But what I also want to show is that you will get a different look depending on the fabric you choose. Magnuson is the perfect example of this which you will see in the 3 versions I sewed. So if you are unsure of whether Magnuson is even your style or if you aren’t sure which fabric to use, let me help you choose fabric for your Magnuson vest.
I couldn’t be more excited to share with you my newest pattern, Magnuson. The evolution of this pattern over the last two years has been fun as the designer to watch happen. What started out as a utility/military inspired jacket has turned into a more modern take in vest form. So many of the original elements are still there with so many new and fun details.
Magnuson has a button placket, stand collar, side slits and oversized pockets, not to mention the gathered waist. So many utility or military inspired vests have the waistband casing on the outside of the jacket giving it a very casual look. I wanted the ability to cinch in the waist but not have the ties hanging down, so inside the waistband went.
