Zebra jacket

This is a Fun and easy project. I had this nice knitted animal print fabric in my stash, and I think it was perfect to make this Cocoon jacket with pockets in the side seams. It’s a bit big, but that is how it supposed to be – it’s very cozy to wear on a cold evening :)

    I absolutely love what you’ve created! Well done my friend!

    I was on the fence about this pattern, but you’ve swayed my opinion. Going to make one in leopard print :)

    It does look cosy and very smart on you Ellen. This pattern would make a good dressing gown for over PJs as well. You have me thinking!!!

    The choice of fabric is really great for such a project: it is well-draped and your Cocoon doesn’t look too loose despite the pattern. You look very stylish in it.

    Oh ellen this is fabulous. I do love your fabric choice. Did you line it?? , i think this looks so gorgeous on you. I have looked at this pattern but at the.moment i have ’nt got round to it lol. I love items like this. This will look as good with jeans/ trousers as skirtts and dresses. Brillant work xx

      Thank you sweet Mary! I didn’t line it because I think it’s more comfy without lining. If you like comfy clothing, I’m sure you will love this jacket :)
