Recommended fabric: The Ilford Jacket can be made in a huge range of fabrics depending on the style of jacket you'd like. Heavy fabrics like denim, twill, and canvas will make a structured jacket. Softer fabrics like linen, midweight corduroy, and light wool will make a more shacket-style garment. And flannel, cotton/linen blends, and chambray will make a lighter, overshirt type of Ilford.

Notions: 5-12 buttons (any size is fine, but we recommend 1-1.5” buttons); 1 yard fusible interfacing (weight depends on the fabric you are using but light to mid weight is recommended); Matching thread
