Alexander McQueen jacket

I dug this one out of the back of my wardrobe to show today. I love it, but the colour makes it a bit difficult to wear with many things. (I've always been a bit guilty of creating wardrobe orphans. I really need to plan more.)

The pattern is available as a free download from Showstudio, and has to be printed out and taped together. I think the instructions have been improved a bit, which is great because they were a bit sparse when I made this!

The front is interesting....

....but all the drama is at the back
I should have pressed this before I photographed it. Oops.


  1. I'm so glad to see that jacket made up. The pattern looks like a puzzle. I love it!

  2. Wow! That's some jacket. You probably need to make something to go with it so you can wear it more, because it's pretty cool.

  3. Goodnes, there's a lot of detail on that jacket!

  4. Re: drafting - OMG that Aldrich book is the most AMAZING thing ever! I can see why it's your favorite, it's now MY favorite too! It's EXACTLY what I always knew must exist somewhere. And re: that yoke dress and patterns, it's so basic you will probably be able to draft it almost as fast as getting the tissue ironed and cut out.
