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.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
