Marcy Tilton's new jacket design is V8795. Look at the mix of tough girl and soft fabric, of simple shapes and cascading drape.
It's a short, unlined jacket with a soft collar and asymmetry on the left side. The drape extends up the collar, giving the jacket even more "attitude". The pattern itself is a very quick sew, and the time required to complete the jacket is mostly taken up in attaching the closures. The pattern calls for either hook and eye tape or a zipper. It's essential to choose an eye catching closure as this is the focus of the design.
My version was finished last week and I am so happy with it. I plan to pair it with casual tops and capris, or dresses. I did wear it with slacks today but the effect was somewhat muted with slacks and loafers.
I absolutely love the hook and eye tape, even though I struggled to sew it on.
