I’m looking to sew a kinda Jackie-O-ish jacket as a light car coat for the winter (I live in the Seattle area so I don’t need a coat for warmth). The style I’m after is the one currently in stores and in fashion magazines: they have stand-up collars, “bracelet sleeves” (about 3/4 length) and often have only a single button fastener at the neck.
I’ve had a lovely piece of tan camelhair just waiting for this moment, but I want to have just the right pattern for it before I cut into it.
I found Vogue 8123 View C is along the lines I want. It doesn’t have a lining but I can always add one (gold silk charmeuse remnant).
Are there other patterns I should consider? Any really good early-60s style patterns out there?
