Pattern Fantastique - Falda Jacket
This product is currently sold out.
The Falda Jacket was developed using a combination of draping and flat paper pattern making. Its bold, clean shapes combine the classic Chanel tweed with the sensibility of a bomber jacket and the humour and volume of a Victorian era sleeve. The pattern includes two different styles for different fabric weights, so you can wear it in the transitional seasons and in deep winter. Style A features patch pockets, while Style B features welt pockets and a full lining.
