The Ercilla Suit Pattern is a free, downloadable pattern from Mood Sewciety blog. Getting a well constructed trouser pattern and beginner style jacket pattern for free is fabulous. Once you download it, you need to print it out and tape it together. Be sure to print a test swatch first – mine test came out 2″ square spot on. If you are new to taping patterns, check out my quick how to assemble a downloadable pattern instructions.
The Ercilla Suit is a casually constructed jacket, there aren’t many tailor focused details, however it does impart a classic look and is a solid beginner sewing pattern.
I noted at the beginning of the video the seam allowance was 5/8 inch, confirmation of that further along in the pattern. I still stitched mine at 3/8 inch.
This gorgeous Papilio Premium Chocolate Stretch Ponte Knit from Mood Fabrics comes in over three dozen rich, saturated colors including Honeysuckle, Caramel, Ocean Blue, Lemon, and more. Check out the entire collection here.
The Theory Bright Tomato Stretch Polyester Lining is a bright contrast to the subdued chocolate brown. Make sure if you are sewing with a woven you choose a woven lining and for a knit fashion fabric choose a knit lining. You don’t want to add a woven lining to your knit garment — it won’t stretch!
