A 2016 Jacket in Pantone 2018 Color

Added Apr 10, 2018

Made this jacket as soon as I got the August 2016 Burda copy. I had also found this nice blue-mauve piece of wool and thought that it would be perfect for early Fall and late Spring. I’ve worn it since however this color wasn’t easy to wear… And then, this spring more violet, mauve, purple colors are showing everywhere! Happy dance here! I didn’t have enough fabric for the large collar or more pockets. I didn’t make the waist tabs as I find these tabs look weird when I wear the jacket opened (which I like to do). I made minor adjustments and interfaced the whole jacket.

Material Notes

Wool and bemberg lining




Spring, Fall

    I’ve been wondering what this coat would look like, especially the sleeves…But it’s perfect! Even the “weird” sleeves look great and help forming this nice silhouette :-)

      Thanks, the truth is that I took the sleeves in a little bit, they are big!

      Thank you! I got used to the color, but I must admit that such an unusual jacket in this color was intimidating at first…

      Merci! En fait, j’ai crois que la couleur est plus periwinkle que mauve.
