The jacket is fully lined and follows a pattern which I found in Burda magazine but which was never published on the website.
In fact, I used it in at least 4 more occasions. This time I added the lining.
The jacket closes with one frog fastener and a few black large hooks and stays slightly opened to reveal the top underneath.
The skirt is a classic cut with darts, invisible zip at the back and slit. The skirt is, again, fully lined.
I added teal colour beads round neckline, and teal heavily beaded lace round sleeve cuffs and on skirt belt (with a little black velvet bow).
A classic winner!
Sizing: Jacket is an UK size 10 (32"bust), skirt is a an UK 8 -10 (70 cm waist)
I would say it is ideal for a formal business dinner, when a cocktail dress is not suitable.
black wool/boucle, lace, bias binding
