The I AM Artemis jacket is one of your favourites. It’s trendy, comfortable and more than anything it’s really easy to make. We can’t have enough of it. At I AM we have sewn it 7 times. Using, denim, jersey, thin wool, thin fabric for a kimono version, and we even have more ideas.
Today, we show you our lined version from the I AM in Africa collection: a jacket made of jersey (sweatshirt jersey type) and lined with a 100% cotton fabric featuring traditional African prints. A lot of you want to line it so here we give you the how to.
We chose to make it in Jersey to give it a more relaxed style and an African print lining to give it an artist and coloured, designer touch.
Moreover jersey is a fabric that can loose its shape and the cotton lining ensures a it maintains its shape.
It’s totally fine to sew the lined version of Artemis with 2 woven fabrics. Usually it is better to make a pleat on center back but as this jacket is quite loose it is not necessary.
This version of Artemis is made to be worn with the cuffs rolled up and without buttons to keep a more relaxed look.
Please note that you need to have the original pattern in order to make it. If you don’t have it yet, discover it here.
