The ‘Alexandra’ Jacket

During my first year at uni studying fashion design (2015), I made a cropped zip-up jumper over the period of two evenings. I hand stitched the white rope around the sleeves, triple checked all the notches matched up and then rather proudly gave in the garment as part of a contextual assignment. The only down fall at the time was that I did’t line it and although you can’t see it but each panel is wadded so it looks really messy inside.

I recently found the pattern so after I finish this year of uni (21st May) and in-between working full-time, I am going to source some fabric and recreate this BUT better. Possibly might add in a pocket to make it more functional. I’m excited! I really enjoy fabric shopping and I need to be more confident in lining a garment.

What do you think of the Alexandra jacket? (or just the Alex jacket, I really can’t decide)

Thank you for stopping by my blog!
