leopard print jacket

Do we ever tire of animal prints?  Not this season!!  Animal prints give you an air of confidence and even make you feel  a little bit "sexy".  
I made this little jacket some time ago and found it to be perfectly paired with my Chico's pants and black sweater.  The large shawl collar frames the sweater neckline with its black binding.




I used a basic jacket pattern 
and designed my own collar. The leopard fabric is a cotton polyester blend and lining is a black 100% cotton.  Using the lining fabric, I cut a bias binding and completed the look by hand.


I accessorized with a black and gold necklace and bulky black bracelet.  Both came from my jewelry box, but I found similar ones for your viewing.

Remember the rules for wearing animal prints:
1.  Don't combine animals 
2.  Stay away from a whole ensemble from  head to toe plus  accessories and shoes all in animal print
