For this jacket, I was inspired by the recent trend of wacky printed tailored suits. I love anything wacky and printed, so it was right up my alley! I also started making a pair of matching pants, but those are still a work in progress (they’re mostly done, but I get hung up on the little finishing details).
I used the Burda “Shawl Collar Jacket” pattern, but shortened the length a couple inches.
