How many of these do you have in your wardrobe? I really hadn't thought about it until I watched this fashion video by Jess Cartner-Morley, the UK Guardian's fashion editor. How to dress: Sleeveless jackets - video
I posted about restyling the jacket with the huge sleeves into a sleeveless jacket in February. I wore it as a layering piece to keep warm at the Atlanta Sewing Expo the second day and got many complements on it.
The Guardian video got me thinking -- my Relax a Little tops are not waistcoats or vests, but sleeveless jackets. Here's my latest one belted over the Sewing Workshop Tosca Dress I made in January.
By Jess Cartner-Morley's definition, the Of the Moment tabard is also a sleeveless jacket. This is a sheer linen and a longer jacket gives the illusion of height.
Still a classic, I made this sleeveless jacket many years ago from the OOP Shermane Fouche pattern and it still looks current styled the right way.
