little jacket

Den Haag, Nether...






I could buy just 1 meter of this great but very heavy wool farbic last summer at the market. It reminded me a bit of old-school Chanel jackets. I decided it wanted to be a jacket, so I had to come up with a design that would fit that amount. I also didn’t want fusy details because of the weight of the fabric. This jacket is short (just over waist length) and lightly flared and had raglan sleeves with shoulder darts. I used the wrong side of the fabric for accents at front, back and cuffs. Hidden hook and eye closure at neckline.

Material Notes

wool, lining, interacing for wool fabrics, closure

    Call me old fashion, but this is the way all women should dress. Sophisticated, elegant, feminine and with style. This is such a great outfit! (Jackie O.)

    Well done, girl! The jacket is so cute, I never would have guessed it was restricted by amount of fabric you had. Love the trimming details.
