Added Jul 7, 2011
Totally inspired by all the army-style jacket clad fashionistas we saw all over Tokyo…. made my own version using Burdastyle magazine 05-2010, pattern 127 with some modifications, out of khaki ripstop cotton and fully lined with pale grey marle fleece.
Added a detachable hood, edged in faux fur (silver fox), partly drafted using Kwiksew 3667. This has four buttonholes at the lower edge, by which it can button onto the 4 buttons sewn inside the neckline.
Instead of buttons and a buttonband, inserted an open end zip. Also a tabs with snap closure at the upper front edge, the lower front edge, and in the sleeve ends.
Lengthened the jacket pieces by about 7cm, enlarged and lengthened the lower front pockets
I have a review of this pattern on my blog here
khaki ripstop cotton, pale grey marle fleece, narrow strip of faux fur (silver fox), open ended zip, heavy duty silver snaps, belt findings and eyelets
