Abbie embodies a semi-fitted jacket designed with a straight silhouette. Its front showcases bust darts extended to the bottom edge and shoulder seams. These darts, now transformed into princess seams, are ingeniously equipped with pockets. The central front edge is elegantly completed with a decorative placket, while the jacket fastens using a separating zipper, fortified with a windproof placket backing. The back is tailored with darts at the lower edge, offering a refined fit. Adorned with a turn-down collar featuring a separate collar stand, Abbie boasts long, set-in, semi-fitted, two-piece sleeves that gently flare towards the bottom. Its length gracefully sits above the hip, making it a versatile and stylish choice.

For the jacket's main body, consider medium-weight, structured fabrics with minimal to no stretch. Opt for materials like medium pile faux fur with a knit or woven backing, napped coating fabrics, or bouclé fabrics. These fabrics should ideally incorporate natural fibers (such as wool), blends (like wool and polyester), or synthetic materials (such as polyester). It's important to avoid using thin coating fabrics or faux fur that lacks shape retention.
For the facing and placket pieces, the designer suggests non-stretch fabrics such as outerwear fabrics, faux leather, or faux suede to maintain structure and durability.
Regarding the lining, select a lining fabric made of artificial fibers (e.g., viscose), blends (such as viscose and elastane, or viscose and polyester), or synthetics (like polyester, polyester and elastane). These linings will complement the jacket's design and provide comfort.
