With Nénuphar, I wanted to create an easy-to-wear spring-summer jacket, that could be made from flowy fabrics for an ethereal look, or from fabrics with more body for architectural volumes. To renew and modernize the style of this kimono-inspired jacket, I introduced contemporary details: a blazer-style notched collar, gathers in the back, and oversized decorative patch pockets.

Nénuphar in details

Nénuphar is a lightweight unlined jacket with a relaxed cut. With wide sleeves and no bust darts, it’s the perfect piece to throw on any outfit on a summer evening!

More statement piece than beach cover-up, Nénuphar has some finely crafted details: its gathered back and hip length give it a modern and architectural style. A blazer-style notched collar and large patch pockets, with notches that echo the ones from the collar, complete the look for an urban and trendy result. But Nénuphar also has a place in a boho-chic wardrobe with its second variation, featuring long gathered sleeves and a slightly longer length!

The Nénuphar jacket is a level 3/5 pattern, mainly due to its collar that requires patience and care to sew. That said, a motivated beginner can absolutely make this jacket if they choose a stable fabric (batiste, sateen or cotton voile, linen…).

The Nénuphar jacket is available in our online shop in printed format (in sizes 34-46) and in PDF format up to size 52! Next week we’ll take a look at the fabrics we recommend for this pattern.
