Riga & Liepaja, ...
My very first jacket! First collar, first flap pockets and first lining!
I wanted a light jacket, and maybe I chose too light fabric! There is some details which could be better! Next time! :)
But overall I am happy with the fit! Actually this is the first jacket that fits me! I am size 38 (European) in bust but in waist size 36! Always compromised one or the other part but not this time!
The fabric is wool silk and the lining is viscose/rayon!
In photos you can see that I have been wearing this already so many time! I love it!
And then there is a blouse! I used a pattern from Manequim 08/2012, #368! It is with a nice contrasting peplum! This was my first time using a pattern from Manequim and I will used more! Just need a patient for all alternations!
