Vogue Patterns - 9427 80'S wrap jacket
There's plenty of these types of drapey toppers in the pattern world, but this one from the 80's is better than many. It is not too oversized and the construction is sensible. The front hood piece is doubled to make a facing, although I did not have enough fabric so I did a single layer with a 1 i... more...

Vogue Patterns - 8839 Misses' Jacket

Ottobre Woman Magazine - 05-2014-20 cocoon shape coat
