Yohji Yamamoto Jacket

This is jacket is fast cementing itself in my wardrobe as one of my favourites. The pattern was a free download from Show Studio. It took quite a while to stick all the pieces of paper I had to print out together, but once done it didn't take too long to sew - there was only two pattern pieces. Here's some pictures of me in the jacket in my messy garden. BTW No I haven't cut my hair, I just pulled the lower layers back to create a faux bob.

What I'm wearing: I made the jacket & pants myself. White FCUK stretch top. Zoe Wittner Gold Sandles. Mimco Hair Clasp.
Fabric used: Lightweight stretch satin.
Pattern used: Yohji Yamamoto for Show Studio
What I like: The draping of the satin, I like the circles & loops created as I move & how they change depending on how I stand. The natural gathering of the fabric. The comfort factor, the jacket looks so elegant & sophisticated and when I wear it I feel like I'm snuggled up on the couch on a Sunday afternoon - the perfect combination!
Cost: This is seriously one of the cheapest things I've ever made, the pattern was free & the fabric was hanging in my closet. I got about 4m of the fabric late last year, heavily discounted, I think it was $2-4 per metre. This pattern only used about 1.5-2m of that fabric.
