One of my new years resolutions was to not buy any non essential ready to wear clothing. I have to much, wear about five percent of what I have, and want to sew more anyway. I’ve been analyzing my wardrobe for gaps recently and have noticed a dire need for Jackets. I love to browse designer sites for inspiration. Shop bop has some great classic designer pieces. I’ve been gravitating towards classic and clean looks, but maybe in an unexpected fabric or color. The jackets below are some good examples of that.
I have a pattern in my stash kind of reminisant of the smoking jacket
- I could alter the pattern a bit to add some bell sleeves. I also really love the vintage modern cropped jacket! Gold is really flattering on me and goes with a lot of my wardrobe already. I’ll have to find a pattern for that one though!
I’m not sure if the last jacket would look good on me, but I love it all the same. I feel like I’d have to get very good at draping though to be able to make something similar.
While I plan out my sewing though I have some good news for my followers though! Shop Bop has kindly offered to give out a 100 Dollar Credit! Here’s what you need to do to qualify for this giveaway!
