I have reversed the fabric so that the stripes run down for the front and back. This works fine as the fabric is stable enough to carry it off. The pattern cover shows the jacket closed but I have made this pattern often, and I usually wear it open. The angled front is flattering as it reduces the amount of fabric over the hips – a smart, stylish new jacket for the season!
This is one of a selection of garments which we have made up using current fabrics and current patterns. Both the fabrics and the patterns are available for purchase.
