Description

As soon as I saw this jacket, decided to make it through thick and thin:-) I mean it wanted too much fabric and it makes the outfit pretty expensive and so not very affordable for me. But I wasn’t going to give up and found the way to make the jacket from 2 m instead of 2.5:-)
The result is very worthy, I’m still not sure why I liked the model but it is exactly what I expected to have. Very comfortable, universal, feminine, well-pairing with any skirts, trousers and dresses. Besides, made in this modification it easily will play the role of a light coat in spring.
I surely recommend it to everybody. Some more ideas for the sewing and wearing it are here
The jewelry was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Dense thick knits for the jacket and rayon (viscose) for the lining.

    You are so well accessorised and it was worthwhile spending extra on the jacket-you look stunning!

      Thank you very much. I guess I managed good with the cutting to save the fabric. And I agree some things are very worthy.

    I love this model too! Already have material to make to the cropped version of it :) I love the color you chose! Very rich and elegant, and it looks great with both skirts you paired it with. It is a versatile pattern and can be paired with pretty much anything as you said already :) The jewelry is also gorgeous. Have a beautiful 2016 :)

      Thank you very much! Versatility is imporatant for me: not many things but many variants… although there is no room in my wardrobe anyway:-)

      Thank you very much, Ellen! I liked the shortest version as well but had no idea how to include it in my wardrobe so chose this one:-)

    What a fabulous start for the new year! Your jewellery is just amazing – I would love to have a precious necklace like this! The jacket is fabulous too, the big lapels are so chic and the color is so warm and rich! I’m a big fan of this pattern too and I want to make the longer coat version and as usual you convinced me to try it. I wish you a happy and creative new year dear Oksana! ps. I read at your blog about the bias stich. I don’t know what it is. Probably this is the reason why my corners are no not so good!

      Thank you, Liliv. I am glad I am not the only one who likes this jacket:-) As for the corners… I’d rather say a diagonal stitch… Sometimes I am confused with using English sewing terminology and can’t find or match the proper term in the sense I need.
      I am sure your coat will be nice, the pattern is good for any figure and any season and can be made from almost any fabric. I’d love to see your version as soon as you make it!

    This looks great on you, and such a nice fit, especially in the back. Nice colour on you. Is the coat heavy to wear on your shoulders? I also like this design. I like how you styled it with different items on your blog. Love the jewelry! It looks great with it. I haven’t beaded in years. Have a great 2016 !

      Thank you, Rita, very much! I must confess I feel its weight but it is not on shoulders, the lapels are heavy because they take as much fabric as the rest of the jacket. But as I like the jacket and made it myself, the burden is not so great, I guess:-))
      Have great 2016, too!
