Sweet moto jacket. So many people have given the ‘larissa’ jacket a try, I figured I would make this one. I love the stand up collar and snaps. It’s very tough looking. I have done a lot of sewing for my little one, but this was my first ‘full size’ project. I am very pleased with the way it came out. I changed a couple of things on the original pattern – the way the pocket zipper is installed and added darts instead of pleats for a more fitted look in the back. Also omitted the front pleats altogether. And added a full lining. I learned a lot on this project – and welcome any advice or critique on how I could make my next project better. Thx:)
