Added Aug 18, 2008

by Vivat Veritas

Tokyo, Japan






i used Emily shirt pattern as a base for this. it ended up too big for me, but its ok..
i saw a smilar jacket in japanese magazine, and really wanted it, so i kind of made this up.

Material Notes

stretch knit





Sweet (japanese magazine) for giving me an idea!

    Oh, an idea from a Japanese magazine… I would die for a good Japanese magazine – lucky you! The coat is great and it suits your complexion!

    It’s gorgeous. If the fit is a little big it can just be your ‘comfy jacket’ :o)
