Added Nov 21, 2010
This jacket is based on a jacket that I saw in the fall/winter BCBG catalogue, but I didn’t want to pay $400+ for it, so I decided to make one myself even though I have not made a lined jacket before or worked with wool.
I used Simplicity 3628 as a guide for the body, but took off from there. I substantially modified the lapel and used a faux suede to make it more interesting. I love the shortened mandarin collar and the chunkiness of the big silver buttons. I added some detailing to the back as I thought it was a bit boring, and also to the shoulders. I also modified the sleeves and added some top-stitching detailing all over the jacket. This is the first time I used tricot interfacing, it is so great, I used it in the front of the jacket. A friend has already requested that I make one for her as well.
I wear the jacket a lot and it looks great with a scarf.

She modified this coat wonderfully by adding length and changing the pockets and collar
