New York, New Yo...
For our business suit variation, we used the Hikaru jacket and Anita jeans as our base patterns. We wanted to do something smart and fashion-forward, but versatile enough to get lots of action in one’s wardrobe, so we used different fabrics for the jacket and pant. We think the black buttons add a bold, classy statement while the collar detail gives a feminine touch. You can find instructions here on how to adjust your Hikaru Jacket pattern to create the Alessandra variation, while you can find the information about the Alessandra pants here.
