transformer jacket
by mokosha Follow

this jacket (that i made for my friend sandra, who models it in these pics)
is actually long cardigan from october issue of burda magazine..
i used really thick knit wool, competely wrong for the pattern
so it ended up looking a bit crazy 
with odd drape in the back,
but then i decided to try the jacket upside down
and it transformed into a completely different look
..
pattern is just two long rectangles plus simple sleeves
really easy thing to make
(once you figure out the 'origami' construction)
..
i added textured black cotton knit as a collar lining
(wool was a bit too scratchy without it)
and also added wool braid trim to the collar
(while the rest of the jacket it finished with black cotton bias tape)
..
