Back to School with Project Run & Play

Cicero Jacket sewn and reviewed by Skirt Fixation

The Cicero Jacket is one of 4 new patterns in the Project Run & Play shop, releasing just in time for the Back to School tour.  This is a very fun pattern, with lots of options to make the Cicero Jacket special.

I sewed a size 8 for my 8 year old.  It’s just about a perfect fit with a little room to grow through the school year.  He’s really excited to have a new jacket. This pattern can be made in sizes 12 month to 14 years for boys and girls.

We sewed the color block version, view A.  It has super fun diagonal lines on the front, and best of all, there are pockets incorporated into the lower diagonal seams.  

Another fun detail is that the back seams wrap around to the front slightly.  It’s unique, and a detail I just love!

David chose the fabric for this Cicero Jacket.  He first picked the striped french terry fabric for the accent.  This would be a great place to use special fabric.  A lace overlay in the center section would also be super fun…I may have promised Annie a version like that! And of course there is a basic version of the Cicero Jacket with a hood included in the pattern. I foresee lots of those in the future too!

The navy blue is sweat shirting fabric, and will keep him cozy all through fall.  He said his favorite part of this jacket is that it’s navy blue!

The collar, cuffs, hem band and pockets are grey french terry.  It’s stretch worked perfectly for these places, but in hindsight, I should have interfaced the collar because the metal zipper is a little heavy and pulls it down.

Oh, and that stripe matching on the diagonal across a zipper?  Only took me 3 tries… But it was worth it, right?
