VintageModern Design Challenge- Light Jacket

Added Mar 7, 2012

Port Of Spain, T...






This is a jacket I made for the challenge using option #3 – the Free vintage E-pattern found on Indygo Junction. The original cropped jacket has great upper form and I wanted to keep that element. I altered it to be a bit more form fitting, especially at the waist. I added a peplum from the waist down to lengthen the jacket and I made the front to be a V-neckline. Thin yellow biased binding was used to trim the jacket and a simple button and loop fastener was added for closure.

Be blessed!

    I love this, you can tell you really thought about the original design and included your own changes. Very nice and modern too, and well put together.

    Awesome use of the print, especially the way you positioned the flowers in the back! And very well sewn :-)
