If anyone knows anything about me, it’s that I love cats, hats, and jackets. Mood recently received this new jacquard with cats in top hats on it, and after pairing it with The Zinnia Jacket pattern, I now have the absolute best addition to my wardrobe that can never be beat. This fabric drapes like an absolute dream. I can envision it as a gorgeous retro swing dress as easily as I can see an adorable bomber jacket or even some cute as heck statement pillows. Personally, the outerwear direction I decided to go in was absolutely purr-fect.
The Zinnia Jacket – Free Jacket Sewing Pattern
I feel like a jacket with cats all over it shouldn’t make me feel this cool, but it totally does. I love how the bottom just billows while I walk. It would lend itself just as well to a longer coat or a full skirt. (Part of my wants to try it with our Iris Ensemble skirt next. No? Too much??)
One of the coolest aspects of this particular jacquard is actually the back side of the fabric. Many jacquards are totally reversible, but this one has an array of vibrant stripes. It’s like a built-in surprise lining.
