Instructions courtesy of Bernward Edward Burns
We have Bernard Burns (of Bernard Burns Custom Clothing) to thank for these Shacket instructions and photos.
In case you haven't yet heard the term 'Shacket', it's a combination of a shirt and a jacket. They are literally all over the fashion scene right now. They come in many different style options.
What you're seeing here is Bernard's unique design styled from the Sure-Fit Designs Shirt Kit. We are very grateful for Bernard sharing with us his talent, creativity and expertise in his Shacket design.
Though these instructions are geared toward our male sewists (seamsters), women could always reverse the button and buttonhole positions for a unique female version.
Additional thanks go to D'Ann Artis who did all the illustrations and desktop publishing.
