What is a shacket?
A shacket is an outer layer that's a shirt-style jacket.
Since you can't just make a shirt pattern from wool coating, the Shoalhaven Shacket gives you something close to a cozy coat, but with the features of a shirt.

The Shoalhaven Shacket is a low-thigh length Shacket which comes with chest pockets (with flaps), a button band, and a deeply curved hem which is finished with a facing. Designed for peak coziness, your fabric choice will impact what kind of temperatures your Shoalhaven will suit!
Fabric for your Shacket
Specifically designed for thicker fabrics, make your Shoalhaven Shacket from cozy wool coating, boiled wool, washed denim, or even corduroy. Perfect for snuggling by an outdoor fire or walks in the woods! For your lining, you want a medium-weight woven fabric which is easy to work with, we think cotton lawn is an excellent choice.
Boiled wool would be a great choice for your Shoalhaven Shacket- check out our roundup of places to shop boiled wool here.
If you're planning to make the Shoalhaven Shacket with a fabric with a pattern which you'd like to match, then you may require more fabric than the fabric requirements suggest.
