It really is quite beautiful. I purposefully made the jacket with extra fabric in the back to generously surround your upper body. The shoulders fit to your frame (no pads) and the jacket looks great with a light jumper underneath for those days when it is just freezing.The weight of the jacket is medium weight as the tapestry is dense so it can be worn when the temperature is cooler and the wind won't cut through it. It's perfect to just throw around yourself and head out the door. The jacket is designed for layering in that wonderful lagenlook way.
It can be worn casually during the day with jeans or a long dress or skirt. Otherwise it would look amazing in the afternoon and evening as the tapestry darkens to highlight the gold against the olive colours. It is the perfect boho gypsy jacket.
The jacket is very drapey and the fabric is very soft and silky to the touch. The fabric does not cling to your upper arms so it is extremely flattering. This piece will perfectly fit for size 16-20 (l-xxl). Please check the below measurements for a fit. Upper arm circumference - up to 40 cm (15.5).
Length shoulder to shoulder - up to 44 cm (17). Bust - up to 115 cm around (45.5).
Length of front shawl - 147 cm (58). Length of back neck to hem - 128 cm (50). If you would like this jacket shortened please let me know (no extra cost). I have prewashed the material in cold water so the fabric will not shrink. This is ideal so that when it's time to give the jacket a wash you can just pop it in to the washing machine - no need to dry clean to iron please use a silk/wool setting and iron the inside of the jacket carefully.
The jacket is not lined as the reverse fabric is a great feature. It is not designed to be reversible though. Due to the vintage nature of the material there are a few very tiny thread pulls but you really have to look for them to notice i didn't want to'fix' them ad i don't want to compromise the vintage wonderfulness of the fabric.
Also, there is a slight fading on the right hand side of the back of the jacket. Please send me a message if you have any queries.
This item is made of woven tapestry and cotton, silk.
