Description

This jacket started out as a massive fabric fail, but turned into a glorious success! From the start, I loved the cropped length, back pleat and single button closure – real classics but still cute!

    It’s such a sweet jacket! And the fabric you picked really works with the 60’s vibe of the design.

      Thank you! The fabric was just perfect for it…luckily it didn’t cost me $10000!
