This is my first encounter with one of the fabrics in the neoprene family. It is also my first time drafting a jacket and the draft is available for download to study (one size). I would love to hear your opinion!

    Il contrasto di colore tra la giacca e la fodera è straordinario. Hai scelto un bel tessuto che risalta molto anche il design della giacca… mi piace molto! Hai fatto un bel lavoro come sempre! :)

      Thank you so much Martin – I was going for the 2in1 look – some versatility with styling ;)

    I LOVE this! So edgy, bang on trend. I’m intrigued – is the fabric breathable? Or would you not wear this if you were planning on getting a little warm?

      Thanks Lucie! The fabric is more breathable than I expected – than of course there’s a reason for that – I’m explaining things on the blog :)
