The Weekend Project: Reworked Phase II


Sometimes I just know that I can take a minor tweak to another level. This was the case with the funky military style of this jacket by Jean Charles de Castelbajac.

My first tweak involved adding minor inserts to the sleeves...to break up the red (see below).

Phase I


I decided to just really go for it this weekend. I had a funky Paola Frani jacket that was just perfect for this bold combo.

I used the collar, front panels and the sleeves to create an inner-sleeve column insert. I kept the unique details from the Frani jacket ... Ruching, pockets and buttons on the sleeves.

Added Bonus: The vertical color blocking is slimming.
