After a flurry of finished projects, and some tidying up of my “fix-it” pile, I’m ready to get going with my leaf print jacket. Maybe. I had these two sketches in my sketchbook, either would work for the jacket, but neither was 100% right.
As you can see I have copious notes!
Ok, so what I’m really thinking of is a bit of peplum detail, but not a wavy, fluffy one. I like structure, so I like the pleats in version 2. I also am definitely having the neckline detail in version 1.
So here’s a version with the bits I like together:

I really love that sleeve, and I think with the neckline from the first design it will look fabulous! I just need to decide on the length… Also, I need to decide if the style lines actually work on my body, rather than the skinny-minny croquis from my sketch book. So I put together these:
So what do we think?? Here’s another picture of the fabric.
And here I thought the pattern was ready, and I could cut out this weekend! Now I’m not so sure. :s
