I used Vogue 8480 to make this jacket. The description is “unlined jacket has front and back princess seams, pockets in side front seams extending into pleats, back lower section with pleat, cropped flared sleeve, self faced front, back yoke and topstitching detail.” I love all of the details in the jacket! I especially like the shape including the notched collar and cropped sleeves. The topstitching adds a RTW look to the jacket. My only gripe is that the jacket is unlined. I don’t think it would be difficult to add a lining though. I’m pleased with the end look. I think the jacket has a unique shape and interesting design lines. I do need to pair it with other things that pop, to make the whole look more interesting! Check out the blog
