After years of skiing I started wearing a helmet but found my jacket’s hood no longer fitted over my head. I decided to make a more practical ski jacket for myself.
This was an excellent challenge in construction and pattern making, as I decided I wanted a few complicated elements such as zip off sleeves and a funnel collar. I researched into waterproof and breathable tech fabrics, different proofing and printing techniques and brought in different elements of other jackets to create the pattern. I wore it for an entire season, through deep powder and park and it still works perfectly.
