i made this jacket last year in my sewing class. its red linen with this thick satin-y black lining. i love it but unfortunately it turned out really formal compared to how i imagined it and as i have no formal events to attend, it sits in my closet. the pattern was vogue something. i can't find it on the website anymore though so i dont know the number.

sorry the qualtiy of these is bad. its my phone's camera.


i used the school's embroidery machine to add flowers to the cuffs.


the buttons are my favorite part cause i think they're so pretty.

So what it's fancy? You should wear it anyway! Everywhere. Everyday. I would.  Smiley

Seriously, that jacket actually reminds me of The Devil Wears Prada. In a good way.

wow! what a gorgeous jacket. id definitely wear something like this formal looking or not. i love the way it sort of flares out from the waist.
*sigh* now youve got me thinking of all the jackets i can make with my meager sewing skills

I love it! Those buttons are beyond awesome.

If you want to tone it down some maybe think about doing some applique or even a various bits of embroidery along the bottom hem in bright and fun colors. Smiley

I think that is an incredible coat! You can wear it still. Dress it down with jeans etc. I think you can wear it any time. Much too wonderful to hang in the closet.

Super cute, it looks almost like a dress. With a higher neckline I would wear it as one.

I'd throw it over a pair of jeans and pointy shoes and call it good.  Gorgeous!

I wouldn't worry about the formal aspect---all of my coats, including my raincoat, are more formal than that. If you wear it on a normal day with normal clothes, it'll work. (Kind of like wearing nice hats---you wear them to a formal event, you look cheesy, but if you wear them just for fun one day, it's quirky. Or am I just nuts?  Wink)

The jacket is gorgeous.  Maybe you could make some felt flowers for the lapel? That might shift it over to funky casual...
