This double breasted jacket has gentle shaping, a simple rounded collar, and tailored sleeves. The one-piece front makes it easy to incorporate patterns such as plaids or stripes.
Anise can be made with either full-length sleeves (version 1) or below-elbow cropped sleeves (version 2). Learn to create single welt pockets and insert a jacket lining as you sew.
