A Note from the Presenter:
This jacket comes together really nicely after the initial tricky sewing steps. I love jackets made from stretch fabrics as they are durable and don’t wrinkle like a blazer would. The style of this athletic jacket is edgy and the contrasting fabrics really make it pop. Try it out yourself to make a great athletic inspired fall jacket! -Meg Healy
