Zip front hooded jacket,
3/4 length sleeve,
Contrasting lining inside hood repeated on cuffs.
I got the fabric from a local thrift store it is a dark purpleish pink (fuchsia I guess) I believe it is a silk dupioni and was probably not the best choice of material since it has absolutely no give. I think it would have been more appropriate for a dress of some sort but that’s the risk I take with thrift store fabrics (well worth it I think)
Also used a light weight cotton plaid for the lining and cuffs.
Re-purposed wide elastic belt for waistband
