Gala Jacket

Added Nov 17, 2011

Remscheid/ Rotte...






One of my first advanced projects. The patern is selfmade. interfacing is haircloth/horsehair, handstitched, also the linning. the fabric is actually for curtains but I thought it would be a beautiful jacket

      Well… You certainly have achieved that.
      Just read one of the other comments. Maybe you need to throw a few dinner parties to showcase your beautiful work. Make your own place to wear it ;)

      thanks! the most I learn myself by reading the pattern discriptions a hondret times. I love perfection, so I have still al lot to learn. Luckily I have a teacher who is able to do haute couture.

    It was already mentioned, but the perfectly matching pattern is really impressive. I also like the five-button. haven’t seen that in a while.

      thanks :-)
      the matching pattern isn’t so difficult but you need a little bit more of fabric as usual. I also made two fitting tousers by this jacket.

    Perfection! I see it with an open-collared floral print shirt and a contrasting print scarf, ala Jimi Hendrix!
