I made my boyfriend a jacket based off the Nigel Cabourn “Cameraman Jacket,” which has the unique combination of wool and canvas fabrics, two different button types and the iconic top pocket placement. I used Vogue 8842, a men’s parka pattern, for the base and adjusted it from there. More photos and details on my blog.
