How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.

I’ve made a number of blazers and jackets for work, and this pattern is very well designed and professional, with very detailed instructions. I highly recommend getting the associated notions kit.
This is my 2nd jacket. The first one had some sizing and user errors. (orange fine wale cord, was epic fabric!) I used a too-stiff interfacing on the first one, so this one i softened it up. The orange one i made the C cup and it was too big, even though i did create a muslin for sizing. I did find the C-cup dart too sharp, it needed some modification to not be so 'pointy'; the teal one i used the standard front and not the C cup. The pattern was well designed and well instructed. I wore this to a Chamber of Commerce event last night and received many compliments!
finally I left away jasika pattern for myself :too much modifications on front pattern
The pattern and tutorial were great. I am 74 years old and took tailoring classes in 1967. It had been a long time since I made a tailored blazer. I am fairly pleased with my completed blazer and am staring on a new one. I found the step by step videos to be helpful and inspiring. When my blazer was completed I ordered the pattern from the copy shop which will make the next one much simpler. I ordered the packet with to complete the inside and found it to be very helpful.
I completed the blazer during a time while healing from an injury which prevented playing pickleball 😩. What a great distraction.
I recommend the pattern and tutorial.
I have not made this yet and after looking at the pattern I feel its too much work. I guess I thought it would be simpler. I also dont know where I can locally buy some of the interfacing that is required. I really dont want to order on line.
I have not had the time to finish my blazer, but I'm very happy with the detailed instructions and especially with the alternate pieces for larger bust sizes! It makes a complicated project one step easier and I wish all patterns had these options. A lot of the hardest work has been done for you. I have made my muslin (most important alteration was taking off 3 inches of length overall, as I'm very short) and I'm confident I can turn it into a proper blazer with these great instructions.
Would definitely recommend!
