I made this jacket as a challenge for myself for a recent runway show. I used the Larissa jacket pattern but left it unlined and did not use the collar. Made from soft gray sweatshirt material and an organic cotton custom-printed galaxy knit, this jacket is extremely comfortable!! The jacket is unlined and has two welt-style pockets in the front instead of zipper pockets.

Modifications included narrowing the shoulders by ~1.5" (in general I think the Larissa pattern has too wide of shoulders) and I ended up stitching into place the back vents, due to the drape of the material I used. It just looked messy and because there was stretch in the knit, the jacket was still comfortable with the vents sewn shut.
