Sporty, chic, and utterly fabulous, this borrowed-from-the-boys style is perfect for light to medium-weight woven fabrics, with a knit rib trim...choose super-drapey sueded silk, rayon challis, charmeuse, or crepe, plus firmer fabrics like chambray, linen, denim or duchesse satin. This one also works beautifully in firm, medium-weight knits like ponte or double knit.
Semi-fitted, unlined, zip front jacket has side panels with in-seam pockets & bust darts. Low scooped neckline & cuffs are finished with knit rib and optional contrast trim. Back has a shaped center back seam; two-piece full length raglan sleeves feature a shoulder dart. Jacket finishes at the hip.
This must-have piece is going to become your favorite casual jacket (you’ll wear it with everything from jeans to a tailored pant, and from a stretchy T-shirt dress to a cocktail worthyLBD) but also consider making it in a softer, blouse-weight fabric, zippered closed over a cami or fitted T for relaxed glamour.
