After the huge success of my tailored shirt step-by-step tutorial, here as promised, is my Neapolitan Jacket tutorial. This post will not be 20 steps unlike the shirt but considerably longer and will feature a lot of photos!
This is what you are hoping to achieve if you follow the tutorial. A soft Neapolitan style jacket as discussed in my earlier post here.
OK here goes….I created my own pattern for this jacket but I am sure you could easily adapt a shop bought Jacket pattern to make something similar. If you are interested in a copy of my pattern please do get in touch. I am using a soft woven silk/linen/cotton mix fabric.
