Description

I made this classic French jacket during the class with Susan Khalje which I took in March. I used 1.7m of summer tweed, 2m of crpe-de-chine and 10 metres of trim.

    I agree with Khatsu about the neckline, and the sleeves are lovely, and the hemline, and the colour, and… yep, great jacket!

      Thank you! In fact, the jacket feels so “warm” in all senses and makes people smile!

    Did you modify the neckline yourself? I really like how yours is lower which makes it less dowdy.

      Yes I did and it was not very difficult at all. I was inspired by the following looks of Chanel ressort collection and a BurdaStyle pattern. You can have a look here
