This fun jacket pattern has extremely exaggerated lapels which make for an intriguing sculptural, layered look. We decided to combine soft faux fur and wool crepe for this project, for a Bohemian look. Worn over a Liberty of London for Target goddess gown, a jacket can lend an element of cool to the silhouette.
The original pattern calls for black wool herringbone with a velvet reverse, and is trimmed with petersham ribbon. We left out the ribbon trim and made a lining pattern tracing the pattern pieces of the jacket. The two front lapels are “lined” in the faux fur. Check out BurdaStyle member stickman34’s version for an edgier look.
