  1. I have a fabulous A mQ for Givenchy blazer pattern. The lapels come up through the collar, giving it this very dramatic and quite alarming appearance. I’ve never sewn it, but held onto it for almost 20 years. It’s inspiring.

      1. ive made it. i overcomplicated things by making it from denim with lots of topstitching, however, and adjusting for a very full bust. it was fantastic, and I have no idea where it got to 😦 ive also got a copy of French Vogue with the same jacket on the cover, and its interesting to compare the two. the Vogue pattern has been toned down, and lacks the dramatic swoop of the original shoulderline.
