This is a project based on the Jorinde Jacket. I altered the front of the jacket to take out the collar and the pocket – to make the jacket a little more simple / streamlined. I replaced the front piece with two pieces from the Steffi jacket (had to alter these a little to fit with the yoke piece and the sleeves from the Jorinde).
I made this up in the most beautiful italian black MP ponti fabric from tessuti – I highly recommend this “ponti” for a jacket choice – it is heavy enough to hold the shape of a jacket and the stretch is easy to put together and really soft and lovely to wear. I lined the jacket in a silk / cotton blend – very soft also. Looks quite nice with the cuffs turned back to give the black a lift.
I am pleased with how this one came together. Really pretty simple sewing for a jacket! :)
