Linen Glenveagh jacket

Added Jun 7, 2016

Northern Ireland...






Look at this amazing linen fabric! It is khaki green (yuk) but has a lovely floral pattern in a burnished silver. It’s weighty enough to hang well and it seemed the perfect choice to go with the Imagine: make it real dress. The beauty of this jacket is its simplicity but I needed to make it a bit more complex. I added a yoke collar, which I have trimmed with silver piping. Because it is unlined I have trimmed the seams with contrast bias binding. I’d never done this before, and the result is a stylish, unfussy finish with a pop of colour to the inside. Based on 3/4 sleeve coat 08/2014 and biker jacket 01/2013. The photos are at the beautiful Glenveagh Castle in NW Ireland.

Material Notes

    What a grand job, Christie! Are you sure you didn’t buy it from a posh boutique?

    The jackets lovely on you. I do love the contrast binding on the inside, it’s a nice touch when it’s open x
