||Self Drafted Pattern:Homage to Yves Saint Laurent (Coat/Jacket)
||My jacket was inspired by Yves Saint Laurent. The largely self drafted pattern features: fitted side panel seams with waist fitting darts; back armhole princess seams; broad peaked lapels with narrow collar; double welt pockets; chest pocket; belt carriers; handmade shoulder pads, sleeve headers, and chest piece; mitered sleeve vents with working buttonholes; elbow patches; and magnetic snaps.
The jacket is made of black and white wool tweed and black genuine Ultra Suede, and it is fully lined with black Bemberg rayon. The contour belt is made of black Ultra Suede and faux snakeskin. The total cost is $50 -- or just over 1% of the $4,000 original.
