Description

I adore this exquisite Alexander Mcqueen crepe jacket (cost 2,870 euro)… since I saw it on the internet… so bought the fabric, drew the pattern myself and made it in just one day.

I used a stronger material… is a sort of velvety corduroy made of cotton.
Beautiful blended tailcoat of Alexander Mcqueen, featuring a round neck, padded shoulders, full length sleeves and a ruffle trim. The jacket has a ruffled tail to the back and eyes and hooks to the front of bodice for closure.
I added 3 roses made with the same material… simple love it… Great wearing with jeans for casual look or dress pants for more elegant look.

Material Notes

2 mts of velvet
1 mt satin for the lining

    Fabulous. Can’t believe you can do it in one day! Hang on.. you musn’t have kids. You really did a splendid job and I like the silky lining behind the tail ruffles.
