I made this jacket of of heavy, warm jersey. It is based on a pattern in a burda style magazine from 2009 – a hooded longsleeved shirt. I altered it a lot, drafted my own pattern for the hood and the details on the shoulder, added pockets, a zipper and details in the front.
Originally, I wanted to make a jacket like the one my actor friend was wearing in a version of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, but somehow the jacket changed into something completely different. Not too bad either.
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
