Description

Since I will often find myself by always making tight clothes, I wanted to challenge myself and still keep my style. So this time I wanted to make a jacket inspired by the Sixties swing jacket. A model with a little more width.
I found a fabulous fabric of silk in one of my drawers. It is woven to resemble wool.
Unfortunately there was not enough fabric to make a jacket of normal length. so I shortened both sleeves and jacket length to be able to cut a collar in the same fabric. The lining is made of an unknown material. Possibly polyester.
