This jacket, made from a textured navy lightweight denim, is made from 23 pattern pieces and is fully lined. It was probably the most challenging piece I made in high school, as it was a more advanced Vogue pattern. The fit, though, was totally worth all the extra pieces and top stitching! For once, my pattern was pre-trend, as the metal off-center zipper trend was not seen for a few years after I completed this. And there are sweet metal zippers going up the the back the of sleeve, from wrist to elbow.
