The Minoru Jacket is a zip-front weekend jacket with a secret hood hidden inside the wide collar! If you prefer, skip the hood and let the dramatic collar be the focus. Flattering raglan sleeves are comfortable and easy-to-sew, and the elastic waistline creates a slim, curve-hugging silhouette.
No need to choose between having a hood OR a cute collar. The hood is tucked away in the wide, roomy collar, ready for when you need it, but stays hidden when you don’t! The collar looks great done up or left open. The jacket is fully lined, with interior patch pockets to stash your cards and keys safely and out of sight.
Practical and pretty!

I bought this pattern because I loved the design of it, and let's face it, I do not have enough time to make a pattern myself. I first made a muslin to double check the chest and shoulders would fit, I had to make a few adjustments but not many.
I made this out of gore-tex and taped all the seams, it is the most rainproof jacket I own!! it has made it through watching football in the pouring rain and walking the dog in the westcoast weather. I am super happy with it!
only changes for next time: elastic hood cinch to keep it out of my eyes and a flap with velcro to keep the water off the zipper :)

This was the first Sewaholic pattern I've made, and the instructions were very clear, the sizing was accurate which helped me make the perfect fit with adjustments where I needed, and best of all - the jacket is fantastic! I love the length, the defined waist, and the hood. I really wish the pattern had exterior pockets, but I added some inseam side pockets and it wasn't a big deal. I will definitely be making this again - I get compliments on it all the time and people can't believe I made it myself. Oh and when I make it again (because as other reviewers have said -- I definitely will!) I will make the hood a bit smaller, because in the size 14 the hood is too big and falls so low over my face as to cover my eyes!

The minoru was the first jacket I had made and I was very intimidated going in, but I fell in love with this pattern. I've made three minorus so far and have one more cut and ready to be sewn. While there are a lot of pattern pieces, the instructions are very clear (and the sew-along posts help if you have any questions or want more pictures) and everything came together very easily. My only real issue with this jacket is that there are no exterior pockets in the pattern--adding side seam pockets was easy, but who ever heard of a jacket without exterior pockets?! But I love the elastic waist--it's easy to get lost in a bulky jacket, especially when you're curvy, and it means the minoru looks good on different body types. My coat was made from canvas with flannel lining, and I had to go one size up to compensate for the thicker fabric, but I had no other issues.
