Description

I bought a remnant of upholstery fabric on sale for $5 thinking it would make a lovely early spring jacket. Then I remembered this pattern I had bookmarked!

I made very minimal changes:

- I made my own bias tape from the same navy twill I used for the pockets, and added a silk lining.
- I omitted the standing collar from this pattern and thus used the rounded placket from the other version of this pattern (https://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/blouson-jacket-112018)
- I added a similarly angled, round-bottomed inside pocket!
- I worked buttonholes in the placket and added big, dramatic tortoiseshell buttons instead of adding a zipper and snaps.
