The Japanese Hippie Doomsday Cult Goes to Work

So, I work in banking in New York City. Not exactly territory for the Japanese Hippie Doomsday Cult look.

But here’s an exception: the Jacket with Back Tie from Happy Homemade Sew Chic, made swanky in cherry red silk dupioni.


The jacket is long and rather smocklike, with no lining and wrong-side-showing lapels. I cut it with tighter armholes and long short sleeves so it would look a bit more polished. Plus the silk is always a good thing.

This is one of the best patterns in the book and a fun one to dress up or down. A casual rendition in linen is on my to-do list.
