Pattern hacking: Cassock coat BCN Unique

sewing_princess_cassock_bcnunique_paco_peralta_cropjacket_frontWhen I find a pattern I like that and fits me…I love making it several times! Cassock coat by BCN Unique…aka Paco Peralta is just perfect like that. For this third version I wanted a short jacket I could wear for work and going out.

Quando trovo un cartamodello che mi piace e che mi va bene…adoro usarlo più volte! Il Cassock coat di BCN Unique o Paco Peralta è proprio perfetto. Per questa terza versione volevo una giacca corta da mettere in ufficio e per uscire.


Compared to my previous hacks, this one is very straight forward…I simply shortened the hem and finally added the lining!

Rispetto alle versioni precedenti questa modifica è semplice…ho semplicemente accorciato l’orlo e finalmente aggiunto la fodera!


For the first time ever I used scuba fabric from Lafab tessuti…It’s nice to work with and wear…but I must admit it’s a pain to iron…you need to use a cloth and it’s hard to press in shape.

Per la prima volta ho usato del neoprene preso da Lafab tessuti …è facile da lavorare e comodo da indossare…ma devo ammettere è odioso da stirare…ho dovuto usare un panno e è difficile da mettere in forma.


I couldn’t resist buying a silver zipper (finding cool zippers is so hard) and then thought using silver glitter piping I bought eons ago from Supercut.

Non ho resistito quando ho trovato questa lampo argentata (è così difficile trovarne) e poi ho pensato di aggiungere uno sbieco con cordoncino argentato comprato secoli fa da Supercut.


I’m very happy with the result. Next time I want to add a raised collar 😉

Sono molto contenta del risultato. La prossima volta voglio aggiungere un collo alto;)

  1. I really like this! Scuba, however, puts me off. I’ve only seen it in person at a posh shop in Florence, where among the silks and tweeds it didn’t shine. Seems supremely practical.


    1. Thanks, Judith! Scuba is actually quite easy to sew as it’s firm. If you have a walking foot it’s easier but you could also put cello tape below your presser foot if you face sliding issues. Price wise it wasn’t very expensive. I had bought it on Lafab tessuti and you can find still some nice scuba if you wish to try. (I am not affiliated to the store I just had good experiences with them. If you email them in English they do reply)
