Description

Very versatile and quite easy project that you can wear in many different ways.

The sewing was pretty straight forward once I was done with grading the pattern down to a 34. The only tricky part is probably attaching the knit sleeves to the main coat but since it’s hidden, if it’s not perfect it won’t show.

More pictures and details on my blog, including my journey to get the fabric professionally fused…

Material Notes

100% wool from Marc Jacobs. I got it at the Mood store but it’s also available online
Lining and ponte knit from Mood

    Been looking for a cropped jacket to make but, after seeing this, I think I have to make this. You’ve inspired me. Your jacket looks fab, wonderful choice of colour too.
