When I spotted this very cool scuba/neoprene fabric on our last overseas buying trip, the beautiful images I'd seen on Chiara Ferragni's blog - Blonde Salad - immediately popped into my head. I couldn't resist and had to grab it!
is a tangerine/red polyester/nylon blend with a black backing which gives the fabric a soft padded texture and also allows for raw edges and outer seams to eliminate bulk. This fabric is also available in a bright turquoise colourway with a navy backing (Two Blue Wonder
). These fabrics are perfect for jackets similar to this boxy style
or tops like this
For a jacket style similar to the above (source unknown), a cropped version of Vogue 8794
(minus the pockets) would look fantastic and keep the winter chills away!
