Leslie Peacock Studio
"I Don't Exaggerate...I Embellish"


A word about Leslie’s “I’m Wearing My Quilt” © Pattern Collection.  Her patterns are designed to be the “canvas” on which artists create their own masterpieces.  The patterns are printed in three (3) size ranges – Size A (XS, S, M);  Size B (L, XL,  1X); and Size C (2X, 3X, 4X).   You are encouraged to trace the desired size on pattern paper instead of cutting the original pattern.

If you have doubts about the fit of the jacket or if you are a “between” size, it is suggested that you trace the next size larger, cut it out in muslin, baste the pieces together and try it on to see how it fits.  You can make adjustments on the muslin and it can be used as your permanent pattern for future use. 

These patterns are intended for your personal use and enjoyment.  They may not be reproduced or used for any commercial means without the written consent and permission from Leslie Peacock.   All rights reserved.

“I’m Wearing My Quilt©” Patternss

Leslie’s patterns are intended to be used as your “canvas” to create your own one of a kind wearable art jacket.  Currently, there are 3 patterns available, but more are in the works.

Each pattern contains three sizes:

              Size A Pattern:    Extra Small---Small---Medium

              Size B Pattern:     Large---Extra Large---1X

              Size C Pattern:     2X---3X---4X

These patterns are multi-sized with the different sizes indicated by the dark outline.  By tracing the desired size, you will be able to save the original pattern for future use. 

Even though these patterns show specific jackets, you are encouraged to add your own design elements, trims, decorative stitches, etc., to make the jacket your own original work of art. More examples of jacket ideas to use as inspiration can be found on the Gallery page.
