As a part of our belief in transparency Atacac would like to share the pattern and 3D-model for this garment. If you wish to support the continuation of pattern development, please do so!
We at Atacac believe that technology can help us figure out how to make clothes in a way that uses fewer resources and with good working conditions, which is where this jacket gets it’s name. We blaze a trail to hopefully inspire others to come up with new ideas about sustainability as well. We also hate boring clothing, so we went all out with the design on this jacket. Using the principles of Kinetic Garment Design, the jacket is only one piece of fabric, cut and sewn to form around the body. We added some pockets because you can never have too many pockets, and made it asymmetrical because it looks pretty cool that way. In a size bigger you can wear it as an overcoat. In your regular size you can impress everyone at the office with the coolest blazer around.
Print the pattern out on a large scale plotter or use the tile function if printing on a normal printer and print it in small pieces and then tape the pattern together.
When downloading you will get 4 different files. A png illustrating the arm, a pdf ready for print, a dfx that can be imported into any CAD/CAM software and a ZPrj with the pattern assembled in 3D. The ZPrj file can be viewed and altered in CLO.
