You know when you finish something that you know will work? And you know you will love it til it falls apart? That's my red jacket.
This turned out to be such a great perfect wardrobe basic. It's made with lightweight red wool, lined in a pretty bright coral. I love this combination lately.
I made view A, size 16 C cup. The pattern fit nicely, I had to narrow the shoulders just a bit, which is pretty unusual for me. Other than that, A perfect fit! I eliminated the flap pocket and added welt pockets instead, which I described in an earlier post.
My other modification was to have three front buttons instead of two...for the "lock and load."

I can't think of a more versatile piece for my wardrobe. A simple red jacket can be worn a million ways...without it looking too "uniform-y."
