Houndstooth Jacket for Kelly

Added Oct 18, 2007

by gack89

Clawson, Michiga...






Swingy double-breasted coat. I didn’t make any changes to the pattern except I hand-sewed the lining in and made bound butttonholes instead of machine-made ones. I’m glad it is starting to cool off so my sister can enjoy her birthday present!

Material Notes

Cotton Houndstooth, silky orange lining

    for me this is something like a reminiscence to christian dior’s new look, i like the cape, congratulations! since i have seen a photo of a dior-cape looking like this one, i have thought about sewing one, maybe i start doing so because of yours!

    this is a WOW! I love everything about it – the pattern, the fabric and last but not least the very careful and beautiful finish (love your buttonholes)
