This is my happy coat. Every time I put it on I smile. My version that I took to Paris is made from Cast Iron Charcoal Stretch Rainwear. Too bad it only rained one day! The luck of good weather. I love the way it goes over everything and dresses up even the most casual pair of jeans.
The studio working name for Vogue 1925 is the Moto Jacket, a lightly fitted jacket with optional hood or collar, flattering princess seams in two lengths (24 ¾” and 27 ¾”), separating zipper and easy to sew inseam faux welt pockets. This flattering jacket skims the figure yet has enough ease to slide over a top, t-shirt or shirt.
Wanting something warm to wear, I decided it would be fun to try my hoodie pattern Butterick 6863 in flannel. The pattern is oversized so this continues my experiment with making this ‘designed for stretch knits’ in a woven.
Always in style and always being re-invented, the classic jean jacket can be worn by men, women, children and is a wardrobe ...
