Pattern used: Leather Tie Jacket 11/2012 #132
My inspiration was “drape-paper-weight-suede-jacket” in: www.shopbop.com/ which cost about 700€.
I used a vintage 1980’s suede and leather 2 piece set. That was size 36 and I am size 40-42, so I had to be creative.
I cut back from existing back (plus a bit of the fronts).
I cut the sleeves from sleeves.
I cut the fronts from the skirt.
Fronts were done differently from pattern, the neckline was straightened and the piece widened by 8"/20cm in order to achieve drape.
Existing front of jacket was left over.
Pattern of the Week
