Iconic Jacket Made to Fit You

This iconic jacket is about to become your new go-to wardrobe staple. We don’t make the rules… that’s just how it goes once you put this on. Perfectly proportioned to fit without binding or sagging, our Hanten Short Jacket is versatile enough to wear for your everyday grab-and-go alternative to a hoodie or to dress up for work or really strut its stuff in finer fabrics at a more high-falutin-fancy-pants (yes, you heard us) event.

Once you make one, you'll want a few of them in different fabrics and colors. But let's start at the start with a contemporary rendition of the traditional Hanten with boro-inspired layered patchwork and graphic lines of sashiko stitching.

First time making a garment? Have no fear! Through class sessions and course discussion rooms, we will walk you through the process from measuring yourself to making the first fabric cuts. We’ll then take you step-by-step through the details of patch placement where you can choose our layout of find one that suits your own tastes. Next, we’ll move on to the sashiko stitching that brings it all together and we’ll finish off with final construction. By the end, all that’s left to do is for you to wear your new creation with pride!

Find a New Passion

You said this was addictive, and you're right.

I've converted a corner of my bedroom to use as my stitching spot. Bought a floor lamp for good light and a firestick so I can have trash tv on in the background

 It is every bit as relaxing and soothing as you claimed.

Get Stitching

Hey, Shibaguyz!!

I am having so much fun playing with boro and sashiko stitches and finding everything that might need 'mending' in my and my kids’ wardrobes.

I learned several things that I didn’t know that I didn’t know!

Inspiration and New Skills

Good afternoon Shibaguyz! In case y’all haven’t heard it enough, your class is the best ever and I had a wonderful time and learned so much.

I just got a little treasury of sashiko patterns and am excited to do a sampler!

Again, thank you so much for teaching an awesome skill!
