Scottish Tweed Jacket Frankenpattern

The body of a jacket and the peplum of a similar but not quite the same jacket… Oh wait…

and then have to come up with some way to handle the fact that its turned out wayyyy to wide at the front – so you scramble to make a recovery by folding back the front opening on themselves to form lapels (even though that certainly wasn’t in the pattern) and sewing them in place, adding a hook and eye at the waist and pretending to everyone that this was definitely what you intended to do from the beginning.

90% planned, 10% improvised, 100% Scottish tweed.
