The Hague, Nethe...
It took quite some time but finally finished this project after 2,5 months. It was worth all the effort though:)! This is a selfmade pattern (with some help of my sewing teacher;). It fits me perfectly and I can wear it for casual daily wear but also for something more formal.
The fabric I used is Italian. It was not cheap but so worth it. The material really makes the jacket look great I think. For the inside I used a light but fresh color blue silk to give some contrast. I finished the jacket on the inside with a chain at the bottom of the jacket en on the inside of the sleeve.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
