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 will find instructions here how to adjust the Anita jeans pattern into the Alessandra variation, while you can find the Hikaru jacket variation here. Good luck!
