I think this jacket is so cool. It is made with a back pack inside of the jacket. You can put the jacket into the back of the jacket and it becomes a back pack. It has a place for a water bottle too. The pattern is a downloadable from Elle and Mac.
I love how these pants turned out. They are easy to make. I made a black linen pair too. I know I will be making more pairs.
The pattern said to hem 4" above the ankle. The picture doesn't show it that well, but they do look cropped. On my black pair I made them shorter because I didn't have enough fabric and they look good too.
Made this coat from some upholstery fabric that I had from a long time ago. It worked out prefect for this coat. The collar around the back of the neck is a little different as it comes out with some of a ruffle. I used three of my polymer clay buttons that I had made sometime ago.
The coat had a opening in the center back, but I didn't see that the back was not cut on a fold so I put the openings on each side instead.
I used the larger size so that I would have enough room to wear something under the coat. This book has some interesting patterns which are included in the book. I am looking forward to trying a couple more in the future.
