We are pleased to introduce the updated directions for a Flower Garden Reversible Quilted Jacket in digital format for download and printing at home. You can create your own interpretation of this reversible quilted jacket by following these detailed instructions. You will choose your own complementary fabrics for the primary and secondary jacket with Rae’s guidance. The directions are based on the Tabula Rasa Jacket pattern which you will need to sew this jacket; we encourage you to make a mock-up of theTRJ, fit it to yourself, adjust your pattern as needed, and test a wearable mock-up before launching into this project. You will also need Band Variations for the TRJ, and will find Tips for Quilted Tabula Rasa Jackets an essential reference. See photos of the Flower Garden Jacket in our Photo Gallery. Please note this product includes written directions only; it does not include a pattern.
