Vogue Anne Klein Jacket pattern. Self lined, shawl collar wrap jacket with slit pockets and back side peplum.
The pattern ran SMALL (edited to correct), but I read up on it on patternreview.com before hand so I was prepared and cut a a jacket 2 sizes larger than I would have otherwise. I also make the armhole slightly bigger at the suggestion of a previous pattern reviewer and my pattern maker who happened to walk by while I was cutting this out.
It’s completely self lined, which makes it very warm, but one think I would do differently is change the sleeve lining to a thinner material…. the double layer of wool gets bulky in there.
This was also the project that I learned you should preshrink even your woolen fabrics. Steam press!
