lcavagnolo’s knockoff of this J-Crewish creation was so inspiring. Her jacket can be found in my favorites. Here is my rendition, made using Simplicity’s 3538, I created my own ruffly collar and added my own pocket pattern. I made this with a silver metallic linen and lining fabric. I had to add an inch to the back yoke in order to limit the stress on the arms (I’m a fairly broad-shouldered gal). I added a handstitched running stitch in dark grey and did a simple machine buttonhole. Hope you like!
