BwoF jacket from 2/2008 issue
My take on this jacket – omitted piping and pockets, made it all from the same fabric (no contrast sleeves)
It was an experiment and I was a bit impatient with it so next time I’ll make sure the gathers on the collar show at the front, bind the seams on the facing on the inside, use a heavier weight fabric to make sure the pleats stay in and it doesn’t crumple. Apart from that I’m actually quite pleased with how it looks on!
