Bomber Jacket Sewing Patterns

They never seem to go out of style, but it can be hard to find one you like. This is why a bomber jacket sewing pattern is a great idea. Not only will it fit right when made to the desired measurements, but there are plenty of ways to customize them. We love a good custom bomber jacket so it seems as good a time as any to share our list of the best patterns available. Each one is ideal for creating a unique garment, that will last through the changing seasons.

Avelia Bomber Jacket

Just about every fashion brand under the sun has made a reflective jacket and this is a look that is not going to go out of vogue any time soon.

It is a material that certainly catches the eye so when you have found the material near you, this is a great bomber jacket sewing pattern for putting it to good use.

The jacket will be fully lined and features a green rib-knit although it is possible to change it up for a different color should you have something in mind.

Reversible Bomber

Another great example of what a stylish material can do when combined with a great pattern. This reversible jacket is a two-in-one, complete with pockets bomber.

Ideal for switching up a man’s style and a reliable rib knit to make sure it is comfortable. There are great textures and it is easy to make two wildly different designs or one plain, and another checked.

The pattern is easy enough to follow and it can be made on a weekend by an experienced sewer.

Reversible Women’s Bomber

The principle is the same, but the design and cut are made to fit a different style. It is a bomber jacket with some attitude when using the right design.

Perfect for the fall, it is super comfortable and has a chic, contemporary look that only this type of jacket can offer.

There are plenty of different sizes available and large pictures to take the sewer through every step. The small zig-zag stitch is designed to give it extra stretch, perfect for when you are saying goodbye to summer.

Knit Fabric Bomber

Although there are other options for the material, we like the look of the finished knit versions. It might take a weekend to complete so considering this a project for an advanced sewer.

Still, with a reliable overlock machine, and two different styles of fabric, this is a great reversible bomber.

It is easy to add pockets to the side seams and we like that this pattern comes with useful tips and instructions, including details on what stitches to expect.

Red Alert Bomber Jacket

The velvet ensures this isn’t your ordinary bomber jacket sewing pattern, and it has a sophistication about it that other options do not.

A little understated compared to the reflective options, it feels great due to the texture of the fabric and is a free pattern with easy-to-follow instructions.

It can be paired with some jeans and a t-shirt to look relaxed or will go with a dressier outfit thanks to its understated design.

This padded bomber jacket has that typical bomber look that looks as good as it feels. One of the warmest options on here, it is ideal for taking the edge off of a cool morning whilst remaining snug throughout the day. This fabric is easily found yet not used enough so you can have a stand-out garment that you made yourself.

Contemporary Bomber

This is a 22 step bomber jacket sewing pattern that is easy to follow and can be made on a single stitch sewing machine.

What makes it better is that there is an instructional video so a beginner can pause, take their time, but still see exactly how each step should be implemented.

The pattern uses a t-shirt as the basis before cutting the textured bomber fabric such as a quilted polyester material.

Floral Satin Bomber Jacket

We love the pretty look of the fabric used, but whatever you go for, the fit and cut of this bomber are what makes it such a good pattern.

The finished cuffs and ribbed fabric make it super comfortable and add a little contrasting flair to the design. With only 9 steps to follow, it is made relatively easy although it is one for an intermediate sewer to tackle.

The whole process shouldn’t take longer than a weekend but you are left with a garment that really stands out.

We love the design of the fabric, combined with contrasting yellow ribbed fabric on the cuffs and neck and waist to give this a style pop like no other.

It is a free bomber jacket sewing pattern that is easy to follow, whilst being forgiving enough for a beginner to give it a try.
