CHARLIE Jacket - Video tutorial

Discover how easy it is to sew our Charlie bomber jacket with this step-by-step video tutorial! Learn how to attach a collar, sew a zipper, cuffs and hem band. The unique construction of the pocket will have no secret for you and you will gain the confidence to make your own, personalized, bomber jacket!

For the tutorial, we use sweatshirt fleece that has some spandex content for greater comfort. We show a kids size, but when you buy the Charlie, you get all sizes, from toddler to adults, in the same pattern. This way, you can practice on a smaller jacket before tackling your own, using fancier fabrics and notions.

Once you master the original, unlined version of this garment, take a look at our other tutorial that shows you how to lined the Charlie and turn it into a reversible jacket!
