I bought some faux fur during the Spring 2016, which I just loved and imagined would make a cosy Gilet. Luckily I did not have to make a pattern from scratch as I had a denim one which fit me. The alterations to the pattern was a new collar and bust darts. I also narrowed the shoulder seam. I decided to include zipped side pockets aswell which was something new for me. The trickest part was creating the pockets, new lining and facings. However good practice!
I am very pleased with the final outcome. This is also bang on trend right now.
This Gilet has inspired me to create another collection and here is the colour board I designed shortly after..
