In love with Penny
I think I’m officially in love with the penny pattern... I made this one for a friend who saw mine and wanted the same ?. More to follow so follow me on Instagram if you’re curious...
Short, oversized jacket with wrist-length, wide sleeves. It can be adapted to the season. Use a warm fabric or lined, faux fur to make a winter version. Use a thinner fabric without a lining to create a summer version.
The Penny Jacket can be made from various fabrics depending on the look you want. You can use a thicker tricot, like a Punta di Roma. Neoprene is also an option, which will make the jacket look more voluminous. Or faux fur, like in the example.
Fabrics with a supple drape: crêpe, viscose with (floral) print > creates more of a blousy, kimono effect.
Whatever the case, make sure that the fabric isn’t too stiff.
