Meet the patterns | The Litmus Jacket
Litmus is a classic jacket perfect for layering over the Bromo shirt and Bogan trousers or really any other garment in your wardrobe. The buttoned front allows for the wearer to create a standalone style or tap into the shacket trend and layer over a t-shirt, shirt or even a dress.
Shackets are huge news right now and with the Litmus on your side you can't go wrong. Create a workman style jacket in plain, hardwearing fabric or go for festival style casual with prints and denim.
As with any sewing project, it’s all about the perfect pairings and we’ve picked these fabrics from some of our favourite indie stores to get you started:
Lady McElroy cotton twill - Minerva
Navy & white Loose Weave Wool – Misan
Royal Pin Cord - Ditto Fabrics
From the casual collar detail to button up front, the Litmus jacket gives a huge range of styling options perfect for any wardrobe. Wear the shacket open or closed, layered up or down - this jacket is the ultimate wardrobe work horse.
