Freehand curves jacket

I have designed this comfy jacket that I will be teaching as a class this fall so thought I would let you see how it looks.

The curved piecing is all freehand and the flowing lines give a new look to the jacket.

The sample is made on beautiful turquoise sweatshirt that was "de-constructed" and then sliced and styled before being used as the base for the curved pieced fabric that was created. There is a binding around all the raw edges and a pocket on the inside front.
