Finally, a classic moto jacket for big boobs! With ready-to-wear moto jackets, you’re forced to choose between squashing your bust, only wearing them open, or having them fit your bust but fall off your shoulders. But all of that changes with the Canton!

This timeless addition to your wardrobe also features princess seams, back fisheye darts, and two-piece sleeves with a full bicep option, and the classic biker-style details that make this a timeless piece for your wardrobe.

Here’s how seven Cashmerette makers took the Canton Moto Jacket and truly made it into their own masterpiece. We’re hoping that these will inspire your own personalized Canton Moto Jacket. Let’s take a look!

Christiana’s Canton Moto Jacket

Christiana went polished and professional with her wool herringbone Canton. She made a size 18 G/H graded to a size 20 at the waist. She chose View A and used the full bicep sleeve. In order to give it a more suit jacket vibe, she opted to skip the hardware.

Her measurements are 43” high bust, 48” full bust, 40” waist, and 49” hips.

Christiana had this to say about her Canton Moto Jacket:

“There are a lot of pieces to this pattern but it comes together beautifully. Really great construction. I love how well it fits! The lines are all very smooth. I plan to make a pair of matching herringbone trousers to make a modern suit out of the Canton!”

Bernice’s Canton Moto Jacket

Bernice is giving us cool and classic vibes with her Canton. She chose View A with a timeless black twill and we just can’t get enough! She sewed a size 6 C/D with a 1” small bust adjustment.

Her measurements are 33” high bust, 35” full bust, 30” waist, and 37” hips.


Bernice shared this about her Canton:

“I love the style lines and how all the pattern pieces fit together without issue. I like that there are instructions to reposition the pocket markings after shortening the bodice. My favorite part of sewing the Canton was finishing the facing and lining edges. It’s like magic when you turn it to the right side—what a clean finish without any hand sewing needed!”

These mother/daughter Cantons are rev’ing our engines and giving us a pop of color and pizzazz! Whitney chose a red faux leather for her Canton and made her daughter’s Canton in a yellow leather hide. Their selections are bold and stylish and they’re giving us major biker chic vibes.

Kirsty’s Moto Jacket

For her Canton, Kirsty chose a 13 oz upcycled denim with a Liberty lining, giving it a more casual and timeless look with a pop of visual interest underneath. She made a size 14 G/H graded to a size 16 waist. She chose View B and used the full bicep sleeve.

Her measurements are 39” high bust, 44” full bust, 38” waist, and 52” hips.

Here’s what Kirsty shared about her Canton Moto Jacket:

“The Canton was a complicated but satisfying sew. I enjoyed being able to take my time through each step, and as normal with Cashmerette patterns, when I trusted the instructions it all came together perfectly. I am looking forward to warmer weather and being able to wear this as a layering piece over dresses. I feel very put together while wearing it!”
