This 2014-Japan trip, we made a visit to nice big book store Tsutaya, T-Site, Daikanyama besides exploring famous architecture, designed by Tokyo based architectural firm Klein Dytham, I went directly to sewing book section. Flipped through tons of Japanese sewing book, I came across the jacket pattern that I always want to make. I end up bought 3 books , I for clothes and 2 for bags no architecture book this time. I just realize how simple it is and should be a great jacket to bring along your trip since it can be folded flat. I use Japanese pattern print fabric that I bought long ago(from Fabric World, Bangkok) as part of the Tokyo trip memory.
They use thin print fabric in the book but I decided to add grey satin lining and fold the outter fabric over to give some weight and contrast to the inner side and could be wear both side. The final size is 42cm.x108 cm. The given size in the book is 53cm.x110 cm. Next time I will try single layer body and contrast color trim around the opening and shorten the length since I want the back side of the jacket not to come down to low.
It is a good simple pattern that lead you to your creative development for your personal style.
