I wear this jacket all the time. Since it’s pure silk, it works for all weather- it’s cool when I’m warm and it’s warm when I’m cold. Another benefit of silk is that it can be casual or more fancy. I truly wear this at least once a week, if not more.
I’m quite a way outside of the Papercut Patterns maximum hip size of 46.5″ (close to 10″ inches away), and because I loved the coat so much I got in touch with the company to ask if they thought my measurements would work with the coat pattern. They said yes, of course, since they were trying to sell me a coat pattern and off I went.
