My first attempt at the Larissa jacket! Have been wanting to make one out of faux leather for a while, but decided to try it in black calico first in case it was a disaster. Was surprisingly easy once I got past the confusion of the pleats. Have made a couple of small mistakes which I’ll be avoiding when I do the leather version (accidentally attached the collar AFTER adding the front facing) and I left off the main zipper as not to waste it on a practice garment. Still need to line it, but am putting it up as it is since I can’t believe I actually managed to get it looking like this!
Black calico, black thread, silver zips, silver pyramid studs for the shoulder taps.
