Description

my 2nd Eva! I’ve shortened it about 5cm, lined it, used the Hikaru cuffs. The sleeves are extra long and open at the bottom. I wanted to be able to turn them up and see the black fabric. I’m thinking about adding a couple of buttons at the cuffs… what do you think?

Material Notes

not sure about the fabric, it’s quite thick…

I’ve had the black one for years,

yellow polyester lining,

3 big black buttons I found in my grandma’s button box

    I like the contrast in colors. It would look good with buttons on the cuffs. Great jacket!

    I LOVE this pattern. It defiently looks like something a teen to an adult would wear. I will try this pattern once I get the right fabric .

    Oh, I missed this… I’m glad I could be at least a bit helpful for creating this beautiful outfit. I love the black edges.

    Makes me think of lime and watermelon. Mm, green. :D Lovely green colour… As afore stated, the pattern matches perfectly. The collar and other black details gives it edge. Very lovely jacket!

    this is very nice. i really like the fabric. you matched the plaid up beautifully, and i like the sleeves. i’m not sure about buttons on the cuffs, part of why i like the sleeves is because they’re open. i think it would still look good with buttons though.

    I love it! Buttons on the cuffs would be great as a finishing touch, but it still looks wonderful without them.
