I made several of these jackets for my mom based on a pattern I drafted just for her, and now I’ve altered the pattern to fit me. It’s a really simple boxy jacket, Chanel-esque, with no front closure so it goes together in a couple of hours. Very Simple.
Fabric, Bemberg lining, interfacing. This fabric was so loosely woven I interfaced each piece with fusible tricot to help it keep its shape but still drape well and fit comfortably.
