Commitment-Phobe-Lover's Moto Jacket

Added Apr 5, 2014

London, United K...






Based on the bad-ass Burda Asymmetrical Moto Jacket of 2013/11, my version is a bit of everything. And to me the perfect balance of edgy & femininity, ready to play any style I fancy for the day! Did I mention it’s reversible-ish? If it weren’t for the single-sided zip it’d be 100% total freedom reversible! Perfect for stylistically commitment-phobes like yours truly. There’s a matching self-drafted pencil skirt that’s equally reversible-ish.

    Thank you all for your lovely comments! It was a bit of an experiment and I’m so glad it turned out well. Hopefully it’ll inspire you to try flatlock seams, wrap edge finishing, and make your own reversible garments! (Best to try out first on easy to sew fabrics that don’t fray much.)
