Good evening, mah dears!
It's been months since you voted for the Intelligencer Sweatercoat to be my next Anthropologizing project. I put it off because I wanted a spring version of the jacket since I live in the Midwest where sweatercoats are practically useless against the weather. Besides, I really wanted a project to use the cutout fabric I created and thought the detailing on the collar and cuffs made this the perfect option.
Based on the reviews I read online about the drape, I gave the bottom of my jacket a more definitive shape with less fullness, which I really like because I can leave it hanging open more like a swing coat from the1960's without it looking like a complete sack. HA.
Can't tell you how ecstatic I am about this floral cutout detailing on the collar and cuffs. It's just so quintessentially feminine and the silk flowers play perfectly against the rougher texture of the linen.
