This is the last outfit I designed and sewed, my first summer outfit of the year. It’s made up of a cognac brown leather jacket and an army green playsuit. I drafted and sewed this outfit as a year-end project at school, over the professional Pattern Making classes I’ve been attending.
The leather jacket has a simple line, with a collar, asymmetric pockets on the front and zip plackets on the sleeves. The back is very simple, with a yoke and a back central seam. I chose a beautiful, soft ,thin Nappa leather and a retro pattern lining.
The dress is in a beautiful army green viscose fabric that I bought second hand. I designed the central draping on the waistline using a draping scheme I found in Pattern Magic Vol. I by Tomoko Nakamichi, mixing it with short culottes. The back has a drop opening.
