GARMENT SEWING: The Wiksten Haori Jacket


The Wiksten Haori Jacket

"It's fully lined so that all the seams are beautifully hidden while giving it the feeling of a lightweight blanket without batting. The construction of the jacket makes it reversible, so the options are endless..." β€” Jenny Gordy, Making Magazine
