The Tamarack Jacket by Grainline Studio has become a popular favourite this year since a similar style was featured on the Great British Sewing Bee. This versatile style can be made using a pre-quilted fabric, or you can make your own quilted or even patchwork fabric; the styling options are endless. This simple, boxy style is bound around the edge and features welt or patch pockets. You can also add snap fastenings or a hook and eye finish.

3. You can also make your own patchwork fabric by cutting squares from a combination of fabrics and quilting them together to create your own unique design.
