I’d been wanting a motorcycle jacket for a while and had my eye on the Larissa pattern. I got this wool blend on a trip to Paris and thought it would be perfect for this pattern. For the muslin I made I cut a size 36, but since I wanted to be able to wear thicker sweaters under this jacket I ended up cutting a size 38 for the final jacket and didn’t make any modifications to the pattern itself, just left off the tabs on the back waistband and added the piping on the inside.
