I have several fabrics already in my stash but I think I need one more to tie them all together. I love the idea of using zippers around the collar. At first I was hesitant because I thought they used metal zippers but reading the pattern shows plastic separating zippers. I could see those zippers catching on everything - including the delicate skin around your neck. LOL. So I just need to pick up a couple of zippers, one more knit and I should be good to go. The fabrics I purchased last fall intending to make a layered T but I held off. None of the patterns I had inspired me. With the introduction of the pattern above, my mojo has really taken off. LOL.
I love the lines of this jacket! I reminds me of a jacket I saw from Roland Mouret's Spring 2012 Collection.
The technical drawing shows much more detail.
Sorry the picture is so small, I couldn't find a larger one. But isn't this a really gorgeous jacket? And I love the shoulder emphasis...us hippy chicks need to balance it out. LOL.
And no...I DO NOT WATCH football.
