Description
For this designer, ladies' jackets have a romantic Feminist quality-they signify an independent woman making her way in a male-dominated world. Moreover, they are a wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. For this cropped jacket, she has mimicked the cutaway shape of a gentleman's frock coat. The bodice is worked in a single piece from lower edge to neck, then stitches are picked up along the lower bodice edge; the cutaway hem, shaped with short rows, is worked in the opposite direction. A separating zipper gives this little frock coat a very modern finish.
