♥ An Original Hand Tailored Jacket Design ♥
One of my passions is tailoring and shaping beautiful wool fabrics into garments that contour the body. During my final year of my fashion studies, I took a major in tailoring and designed and handmade this fitted pinstripe wool jacket with an asymetrical hemline and open bust front. It’s a little unusual but definitely a statement piece!
An Open Breasted Tailored Jacket
This jacket was matched with a sheer cream blouse with pointed collars that hung over the bust and a pair of trousers in the same pinstriped wool. The design was inspired by fashions of the 1990’s.
Hand tailoring techniques were applied to the built-up neckline and front with welt pockets and buttonholes. The welt pockets are still stitched closed after all these years hanging in my wardrobe.
The inside is lined with a lovely navy polka dot print silk haboutai.
Sadly, I don’t have the patterns for this jacket anymore but I will be redesigning this style for my Mooshi range soon. Watch this space! Ciao xx
