Project

Little Jacket

I drafted and made this jacket after having purchased the rest of a heavy silk. The fabric measured only 140 by 140 cm. This limitation made me drafting a jacket to the high hip and with an opera neckline instead of a lapel. For the interior, I followed Susy's instructions on the trio, the back interlining and the cap interfacing. I also decided to us use a dart starting from the lower part of the armhole and the dart bulk folding upwards. With this, especially the front came out very well. As a big busted woman I always have the problem that the bodice collapses around the underarm. With the trio and the dart solution this does not happen with this jacket. Additionally the jacket is fully lined (rayon) and has a hanger also following the class instructions. The pockets are fake, they do not funcion.
