My new favourite jacket

Added Jul 22, 2011

Brisbane, Australia






Inspired by the Hikaru jacket. I have changed a few things, but basically kept the same military look. I have inside pockets to add to that military feel. Would have liked to have used a heavier material, like wool, but the lining was heavier than I intended, so it has ended up being very warm.

Material Notes

Garbadine with polyester lining




Garment Type

    I really like this coat. I too have admired (downloaded) the Hikaru pattern. It commands attention in all the right ways :) The feminine lining is a nice touch too

    this is so great! I love the contrast of silk lining with the industrial look of the outside. excellent coat!
