The idea for the reversible jacket came from my wish to have a vast assortment of jackets in the winter yet not wanting to buy unnecessary items or contribute to the mass of clothing that goes to waste at the end of each season. By making a jacket reversible my aim was to make a garment that looked as though it was a variety of jackets when in reality it was only one. By doing this I was able to save space and money. Furthermore, when making the garment I was able to use less fabric then the patter required as there was no need to make a lining, as the second jacket became the lining. I used applique on the turquoise side as I wanted there to be a link between the two sides of the jacket.
