Diagonal jacket with triangle pattern in the back

The idea of crocheting the diagonals in the back of this jacket has been tumbling around in my head for a while. I’ve been playing with different angles to have no side seams but the back just wasn’t coming out right when being crocheted on the bias. The waist had to be shaped to fit properly otherwise I will look like a kartoffelsack (sack of potatoes : )). There are some patterns with hanging back, but such a stuff can be bought at any cheap shop and worn at home (why bother to spend time crocheting it or use expensive yarn?). I surely prefer to wear more elegant crochet jackets outside : ).

Recently I saw this dress with triangle patterns by Diane von Furstenberg with shaped waist but was kind of disappointed because the centre in the back looked not very neat – some parts looked as though they were sewn together:

Triangle in the back

This is what I made and then undone everything : )

Based on that trial version I’ve made a cardigan with diagonal front (crocheted on the bias) and straight back (worked back and forth):
