The Ottoline is a boxy workwear jacket with cuff and side seam splits and inside pocket. Although a lovely design detail the vents are a little tricky, so we have included instructions to simplify Ottoline by excluding the side seams and sleeve vents if you like.
Skill Level Experienced, but not doing the slits on the hip or sleeves would make it a more intermediate level.

5 x buttons approx 3/4"-7/8" (22mm) (7 if you are doing buttons at the cuff)
Optional: Contrast top stitch thread A heavy duty thread rather than a topstitch thread gives a more authentic look to the topstitching and is easier to use. You may find you get a better stitch using a matching ‘sew all’ thread in the bobbin.
