In my grandma’s stash from soviet times I found this fabric, which I assume is meant more for dresses, not jackets. But of course, who takes into consideration the fabric if someone desperately wants to make a jacket. So I took this fabric and made it. It was very tricky, as predicted, to give the right form to it and to deal with all the ironing during sewing, but at the end it turned out quite well and it is qute easy to wear it.
