I am not fluent in French, but I decided to go for it and make one of the new Deer & Doe patterns. La Veste Pavot (the poppy jacket) seemed simple enough in construction, and I was right! It’s a cute trench-style jacket with a peter pan collar, large buttons, and a defining waist band. I made a couple changes, like shortening it a bit, omitting the gathered sleeve cap, straightening the flare a tiny bit, and interfacing the collar.
