So what exactly is a shacket? Sure, it's a cross between an unlined jacket and a relaxed button-up shirt, but it is also a skill-building superstar. When you sew this classic layering piece, you’ll learn all the techniques needed for making button-up shirts—while sewing a cozy jacket that you can layer over any outfit.

The Bud shacket will walk you through techniques like assembling button and cuff plackets, using the burrito method to finish the back yoke, and sewing a two-pieced collar. Plus, it has some fun details like pleated chest pockets, patch pockets with side openings, and a locker loop at the back yoke. Pair this shacket with your favorite bottoms and wear it as an outer layer or button it up on its own.
