Description

I loved my friend’s electric blue Sandro jacket, but sadly I couldn’t find it anywhere online or in the stores…my only option was to sew the thing myself! This version is made with an electric blue wool crepe, paisley black and white lining (you can see it peaking out in the side shot) and two heavy duty metal zippers for embellishment.

    Clean, straight lines. Very professional finish. This will make any fashion house proud.

      I actually drafted this pattern myself, but you could probably adapt any jacket pattern with a shawl collar and no front seamlines to get a similar look.

    So stunning! That’s a real ‘go to’ jacket. I was really hoping you’d made it off a pattern – did you, or did you draft yourself?

      Thanks Debbie! I drafted this myself, but I think it would be relatively easy to adapt a pattern for a jacket with a shawl collar to get a similar look.

    I love your jacket. It’s chic, casual and edgy at the same time. I adore the neckline. Thank you for the inspiration for my to do cream-colored jacket.
