Meet the Brooklyn Jacket! Yet again, I’m bringing you something inspired by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, since I know you all just can’t get enough of her looks. Midge never shies away from a fabulous jacket or coat, and as costume designer Donna Zakowska wrote in her excellent book Madly Marvelous, “her rainbow closet of coats became inseparable from her persona.” Likewise, she has a whole collection of little jackets to coordinate with her dresses and skirts.
The Brooklyn Jacket is a fully lined and fitted jacket in two lengths, with two versatile sleeve options. Make it in a cropped version with darling covered buttons and an open front or in the waist-length version with a sophisticated front button closure. With an optional faux welt breast pocket and pocket square, you have many mix-and-match opportunities to sew your own elegant fantasy! The best part of this jacket is that it’s weather-appropriate no matter where you are in the world. — xoxo, Gertie
