Folia is a mid-season buttoned jacket inspired by safari jackets and overshirts. Being so, the jacket is unlined. The bodice features geometric panels at the front and at the back. Darts caught in the yoke give a very feminine shape to the garment. The sleeves can either be finished by a simple hem or with buttoned cuffs to be rolled up easily. The neckline can remain simple or be enhanced by a collar. About the collar, two options are available : one collar is narrow with a smooth curve while the other is wide with sharp corners. Patch pockets or gusseted pockets can be sewn on the bodice, enhanced by triangular flaps or not. Please note that the flaps can be buttoned on the pocket. Decorative flaps at the chest and shoulder tabs give the jacket a military style.
All seam allowances are included
