So one day I was looking through my closet for something to wear and I became incrrrrrredibly frustrated with my lack of jackets.

Or, should I say, lack of variety :[

I simply LOVE double-breasted jackets, as well as cropped ones, so I sketched out a design.  After I finally mustered up the will-power to start sewing, I also drafted the pattern myself.

I also "lined" it (it's not really lining; I just sewed the whole thing in two layers: the plaid outside fabric and another khaki fabric I had lying around). The only reason I did this is to make the whole jacket a little more structured.

In the end I think I should have added seams to the back to make it slightly more fitted, but I'm growing to like the box shape more and more.

I initially bought the plaid fabric to make a pair of shorts or perhaps a jumper, but in the end I used it to make this jacket. I'm actually pretty pleased with the outcome.

So now, without further ado: (I apologize for the low-quality and bad lighting)

A front-ish view.

Back view.


I welcome comments and criticisms alike!

Thank you for looking.
