Statement Jacket

This is one of my test jacket for the Sewing

The challenge was to make a statement jacket similar to the jackets Beatles had on the cover of the St. Pepper album.

I found a carnival pattern from BurdaStyle 01/2006 which I thought was great.

Instead of using decoration band in front where the buttons is placed, I made paspel- opening, but closed them with a bit fabric underneath.

I think it's a nice shape of the jacket with the longer peplum at the back.
