Casual crossover friendship jacket

This is a fab casual jacket. It is made from denim jersey fabric and inside lining, so it’s great for spring as it’s still a warm jacket. I lined the sleeves in a different fabric and this could be used to make the jacket more eye catching. In my case it was just down to the fact that I was short of fabric. The asymmetrical front makes the jacket very versatile, as it looks well buttoned up, or just worn loose. The sleeve cuffs can be turned back or worn long.
The best thing about this jacket is that it is perfect fit and style for my friend (pictured).
The ribbon trim is Paul Smith and the stripes’ colours are just perfect for most projects.
The sleeves are vented and I managed to get the lining done quite simply, but now that I think about it, I’m not just sure how I did it!

Material Notes

Stretch denim jersey and lighter weight jersey for sleeve lining.
Shell buttons in 2 sizes

    Very stylish… I have no that issue but from what I see on the site’s picture I like your jacket better. I guess it represents the jeans style in its best and the pattern matches the idea perfectly. Buttons and contrast lapels looks wonderful. Besides, the jacket fits the model very well.
