Leather Philip Lim inspired jacket

Added Sep 8, 2011

by berfahsews

San Jose, Califo...






My take on Philip Lim’s Fall 2011 jacket. I made some modifications to an existing pattern at the sleeve and the neck and added the leather accents. I added a silk charmeuse lining with a raw silk flat piping. The interiors have shoulder pads and a sleeve head to give added oomph.

Material Notes

men’s wool suiting, silk charmeuse lining, leather accents, magnetic closure




Garment Type
Classic, Mod
Leather/Fur, Silk, Wool

    What a superb jacket! I love the boxy shape and widened sleeves and whole minimalism of it. Damn, I’d love a version of that!
