I really liked the Hikaru pattern and wanted to make one. I did not do any alterations (just added some piping here and there). As for the fabric, I’m not sure what it is but I thought it would be nice for this kind of jacket. I really like the buttons I found (used a smaller size for the buttons on the sleeves) and in the end I used only 8 on the front.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
