Description

This look was inspired by the true fashion icon from the 80’s, Miss Denise Huxtible. Using Burda Style pattern Collarless Jacket I made with a white lightweight jacket fabric. The only alterations made to this pattern was letting the zipper remain exposed rather than covering it up with twill tape, and fully lining the coat – rather than just doing facings.

For the jumpsuit I used a wide leg pants pattern, and self drafted from there.

    IT’s well executed. I’d love to see the jumpsuit in a vertiticle stripe. It would have given this nice outfit a very modern flair.
