My ESP must have been on full-blast eight months ago. I saw it: A cool casual jacket with interesting pockets and shoulder tabs.
Burda jacket #130 from the 10/2009 issue was on my list. So I cut out the pieces…and let them sit for seven months. I picked it up again, banged out the shell then…let it sit again. Hey, I’m a busy girl and have lots of stuff to do. (Like screwing up a jumpsuit and making my beloved mother a jacket, too. And making myself a few dresses.)
All I have left to do is attach the lining to the shell. Soclose! Today my all-knowing self was vindicated. This season is THE SEASON for cool casual jackets with interesting pockets and shoulder tabs! Saks put one right in its window!
Complete with shoulder tabs:
And **eek** interesting pockets!
Difference: Mine will have buttons, not a zipper. But it’s made from the same fabric as these pants so I can wear it as a casual suit. I’m in no rush, though. We’re still 20 degrees from jacket weather!
