San Pedro De Mon...
I have just finished this bouclè jacket. I did not have enough material, and I wanted to do the front-and-neckline on the bies so…..I could not make any facings, and took me for ever because of the lack of material, and having to match the squares. Also, I had to sew all the lining by hand, and on top of that, I decided to do some contrasting color easy hand stitching to make it look nicer. I made the buttons by hand and I use a brown thread that I took from the cloth to make sure it was going to match perfectly. The lining is pure silk. I can tell you that even do this jacket looks so simple…..I use so many-many hours to make, but I am happy with the result.
Outer jacket in bouclè+brown trim, and lining in pure silk charmeuse.
