I love the jackets, coats and suits from Lilli Ann and so i needed a jacket with a peplum, a big shawl collar and a little bit of the “New Look” shape.
I used a pattern from a german magazine “Der neue Schnitt” 10/1956. I added the peplum and collar, made a full bust adjustment and a handstitched lining.
There are some wrinkles in the back collar, because it’s a little bit too long, but that does not stand out in motion.
I’m very happy with my jacket – i could wear it with dress and with pants too.
Now i plan a matching pencil skirt for a suit!
