I love the current look of denim paired with dresses. Cute!
What I don’t like is how boxy and shapeless denim jackets tend to be. Yawn. I actually feel a bit lost in them and they always seem so bulky and heavy.
I realised at this point that I should have left more snaps on the front placket because I wanted the option of doming it up just under the bust. Oops! It took an evening or two of hand stitching to reattach those again.
I shortened the sleeves and, to make a more structured looking shoulder, I opted for a few little pleats on the shoulder seam and a single pleat down on the hem.
Done! A cropped jacket to offset any summer dress. I love the tailored fit and feminine touch, while still being a little edgy.
