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.
