I used my bodice sloper to make a short-sleeved jeans-jacket-style top, complete with a pointed back yoke, breast pockets, topstitching, and a rolled collar. I wanted to make it a little more formal than a jeans jacket, though, so I chose purple and olive for the colours, and didn’t use denim fabric.
You can find out more about how I made it here, and what online resources I used, at my blog post about it, Purple and Green Jacket
