Learn the Shortcuts to Making a Designer Jacket

Threads Magazine - Issue 128
Article Image
If you think the epitome of timeless, luxurious style is a quilted nubby-bouclé-and-silky-charmeuse jacket, you’re in for a treat. Cheri Dowd shares her way to construct the jacket in about 15 hours, so there is plenty of time to splurge on the fine embellishments that make an expensive designer jacket, well, designer. With the construction quickly accomplished, spend your time creating fabulous designer details — trim braided from the fabric’s yarns, a signature chain hem, and fancy buttons and pockets. You’ll be able to wow your friends with your custom designer jacket in no time. From Threads #128
