I really like short jackets and coats, but have you ever noticed how hard it is to find really nice ones? I’ve always found them elusive, especially in a warmer weight.
But this one has pretty much solved my jacket needs. It’s warm enough to wear most of the time here in Oregon, but it doesn’t completely cover me up. It’s got a cute feminine shape (and collar) but still a really clean and classic cut. And the fabric is such a gorgeous Pendleton wool, these photos do not do it justice. It’s just dreamy. And camel is becoming one of my favorite colors to wear lately.
The lining is a gorgeous coppery-brown silk charmeuse.
What do you think about the length? I like it for myself, but if you were making this would you want it a little longer? I can’t decide if it looks a bit too blazer-like at this length and making it a couple inches longer would make it seem a bit more, I don’t know… substantial?
Oh, and lest you think this an odd project for Spring/Summer, welcome to Oregon, where the high on Monday is predicted to be 54 degrees. SIGH.
But can’t really complain too much when you get to see roses like this everywhere.
