The Magic Bed Jacket

I wouldn't call this especially magical when you have a lot of curve hemming to do, but it is relatively easy to make.  Originally published in a 1930's edition of Fashion Service magazine (I don't remember which one), published by the Women's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences.


If you make one, let me see!

  3. I suppose you could make this is today's fleece for a really cozy jacket!

    1. To add to that you could finish the raw edges with a wide blanket stitch rather than hemming. Close with a button and tab or ties. Patterned fleece would look good. Good idea for quilt groups looking for a nursing home charity project.

  4. Why does everyone think this is only for old ladies?? I am making this for myself to throw on my shoulders, since my office is in the basement. A cape is a lot faster to put on and take off than anything with sleeves. Perfect!!
