The Cocoon Jacket is no longer available as a free PDF download. Sorry for any disappointment, but there are lots of other free patterns  so please have a browse.

This pattern takes 1.25m / 1.25yds of fabric (standard 150cm/ 60inch width) for the outer and 0.75m /0.75yds of fabric for the lining.

All my free sewing patterns are made to fit a size 12, but can be easily adjusted at key points to go larger or smaller. Have a look at the Making a pattern fit page for how to do it. There are also measurements on this pattern so it is easy to draw out yourself on wrapping paper or wallpaper lining if you don’t have a printer – or actually, sometimes its easier if you want to make adjustments.

Have a look at the post on my blog about this top for helpful tips and ideas about which fabric to use. There is also an illustrated step-by-step tutorial for how to put it together.
