If you haven’t noticed yet, I like making things. I especially like making things that are EASY to make, but look great! Here’s another project that uses the “fashion origami” techniques I illustrated in my last How To. This cropped jacket is made by folding (and unfolding) fabric a few times, cutting two curvy lines, and sewing. There is really no limit to the amount of clothing that one could make using this technique, and I really encourage everyone to try at least one of these projects in their free time this week. Find a nice knit or even a medium-weight cotton, and you might have the perfect spring-time evening jacket on your hands (or rather, your shoulders) in no time!
