Added Jan 8, 2009

by missvalentin...

Paris, France






1st semester senior year tailoring project.

update* My silk chiffon ties ripped off eventually due to stress so I replaced them with silk charmeuse ones.

Material Notes

Wool for jacket, lined in silk charneuse with silk chiffon tie.




Garment Type


Pattern, design and sewing by me. And Sally Nichols for her wonderful instruction of course.

    Gorgeous! Beautiful shape, and the simple fact that it’s wool with silk lining makes me dribble…

    Stunning, the lines on the jacket are sublime. Really, really beautiful. Could you direct us to a pattern that might be similar?
