As most of the pattern pieces had seen better days, I needed to re-trace the tissue. In doing so I decided to add some swing to the back of the jacket (I think that was successful!). The fabric is a beautiful wool upholstery fabric... so if anyone want to sit on my jacket - it has excellent rub rates! The fabric has made the jacket quite weighty, but I quite like that... it's warm!
I used the same cotton print fabric used to make this skirt, so it is demure to wear buttoned up, and a surprise flash of colour to wear partly open. I added a cuff to the sleeves to add length and, I think, quite a nice detail, and oversized vintage green buttons finish it off.
