The Falda Jacket was developed by Pattern Fantastique using a combination of draping and flat paper pattern making. Fabric carved into bold clean shapes. It has a nod to the classic Chanel tweed, together with the sensibility of a bomber jacket and the humour and volume of a victorian era sleeve..
This style comes with two different options, depending on your fabric weight choice. A jacket weight cotton with patch pockets for the transitional seasons or blanket weight wool with welt pockets and full lining for deep winter warmth.
