Feminine style + edgy printed fabric + leather = the perfect jacket!
The petite fit of this Puff Sleeve Jacket is perfectly fitting to my curvy body. The flared center back pleat and puffy sleeves are wonderful details that make this jacket special. Since the silhouette of this pattern was so feminine I decided to make it in a more edgy print, so when I found this waffle knit skull printed fabric I knew I had the perfect match.
I didn’t want the jacket to look overwhelmed with the print, so I also used spandex leather in some panels to break it up. This was my project for my August Mash Up so you can see how I modified the style to accommodate a zipper and additional style line. I almost don’t care that the summer weather here is coming to an end, because now I can layer up my outfits with this jacket!
