Jacket with pointy shoulders.
Although I always make my own patterns and sew a lot, I decided to do a seriously involved project this time. I decided to re-think the fit of my earlier jackets and started with making a new jacket sloper. After many muslins, I got the fit right and then, I tried out a strange design element. The pointy shoulder. I liked it and decided to go for it.
The jacket itself is made from nice, densely woven wool fabric with horsehair interfacing, which I padstitched at the lapels and collar.
More ‘fun’ pictures of the jacket are here and here you can find pictures of some of its details.
