50’s Jacket wants to be a Lilli Ann Jacket.

December 1, 2015

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!

  1. This looks great! And it’s a beautiful color. I have some black/white silk and wool suiting that’s been sitting waiting to become a Lilli Ann style suit for quite some time. I look forward to seeing yours with a matching skirt!
