You'll wear the Lou jacket for years to come. Lou is a fully lined, hooded jacket with a stylish A-line fit. The hem hits a few inches above the knee, and there are a few details that make this jacket so classic. It features a three-piece hood, shoulder yoke, and patch pockets with an angled flap. The sleeves have adjustable tabs you can cinch and snaps along the center front.

Sew this jacket in medium-weight or heavyweight fabrics, like jacketings, canvas, denim, and twill. Since the design doesn't have a bunch of extra seams, this is a great project to sew in a water-resistant fabric for a fun raincoat!
