Pattern #111 from Burda World of Fashion 3/2009
A yoked armhole princess jacket with patch pockets and half belt detail in the back.
The sleeve vents were a detail I added, modeling them off of two RTW jackets in the closet. The corduroy has a real vent with real (uncut) button holes on it. Then you sew the buttons on top of the holes closing the vent together. The lining has no vent and is sewn over top the over lapped fabric on the inside.
Jacket -Thick waled corduroy in a subtle green color bought from (now closed) Fabrications in Kennett Square
Lining – Plum Vera Wang Designer Silky Polyester lining from Fabric.com
