Chore Jacket Patterns

Workwear Jackets, Chore Jackets, Artist Jackets! Hard-wearing jackets for working hard in (and not working hard in)! It’s handy to have big pockets to fill full of things (who doesn’t need a dedicated mask pocket), which will make up for the lack of pockets in so many of the clothes you don’t sew for yourself.

Without further rambling, a selection of Chore Jacket Sewing Patterns!

Chore Jacket Fabric?

Classic Chore Jackets are made with bottom-weight fabrics that are hard-wearing, so you can work in them! Grabbing a canvas drop cloth from Bunnings or Mitre 10 can be a cost effective solution because the extra width brings the per-metre price down.

Finding buttons

All of these Jackets really highlight their buttons! My favourite places to find buttons in NZ is Hawes and Freer (who have some great eco options like corozo nut and sustainably farmed horn), and TradeMe.

When hunting for buttons on TradeMe, I type in the width I’m looking for and filter the search to items within NZ.

Remy Shirt

The Remy Shirt from Papercute Patterns is maybe closer to a shacket than a chore jacket but it was too cute to not be included. Add your own extra pockets for storing rocks and other important bits.
