The Belmore Jacket details
With hidden inseam pockets and a modern collar, The Belmore's gorgeous sleeve facing means you can choose between wearing your sleeves cuffed or uncuffed!
This boxy jacket hits at the low hip and is designed to pair with our existing patterns! Make your Belmore from denim, medium-heavyweight linen, boiled wool, cotton canvas, cotton twill, corduroy, or even lightweight wool coating.
You can choose to finish all the internal seams with hong kong binding, like Leila has done below. We step you through the process, but you can also see it on our free sew-along video.
Fabric for your Belmore Jacket
The Belmore Jacket is perfect for all seasons- up the coziness of your jacket by changing the fabric! A linen Belmore will be perfect for keeping the sun off, or beating the chill of the air-con. Denim or cotton-twill will make a versatile trans-seasonal piece. Make the Belmore from boiled wool or wool coating for peak snuggle factor!
At the top, Leila wears her colour-blocked denim Belmore- which is made from leftovers from the jeans-making process. She's paired her Belmore with a grey marle merino Tarlee T-Shirt. Above, you can see Leila in her linen Belmore with a linen Torrens Box Top and linen Glebe Pants.
Also Above, I'm wearing an 8oz chambray Belmore Jacket with a liberty print Waikerie Shirt and natural linen Glebe Pants. Below, I'm wearing my linen Belmore with a bamboo Tarlee T-Shirt and pink linen Glebe Pants.
