Lilliana Bonus

Lilliana's Member Exclusive is exceptionally fashion forward. This version offers an asymmetrical front closure, a bottom front panel with hidden pockets, and a button closure.

When worn open, the front pieces look like large lapels, which add an edge to your outfit. Like the original Lilliana, this simple, straightforward design provides you with options for experimenting with bold fabrics and trims, without having to worry about technical details or intricate pattern matching.

We suggest using an interesting textured woven coating fabric, such as a tweed, jaquard, or bucle. You can experiment with a complementary colored bias binding, or simply staystitch the raw edge and let the fabric fray for a unique detailing.
