Soft biker jacket

Made this jacket back in February, this version was intended to be a muslin but the fit was so great that I’ve decided to wear it even lf for this version I chose regular zippers (why oh why hadn’t I used metal ones?).
This is a very short jacket and exactly what I wanted. I greatly recommend this pattern.
I’m wearing it with the mini skirt from the same January issue. The cut and pleats at the hip are fun although for someone like me who has about 11 inches difference between waist and low hip it was a bit of a challenge. But it can be done. I usually draft my own skirt patterns but this one is an interesting variation of a pencil skirt.

Material Notes

Jacket: light faux suede (poly)
Skirt: remnant of cotton/linen blend

      Thank you, I must admit this outfit was made as a trial, I was tempted by the magazine pictures but not so sure about the result on me.
