Lolita Sailor Jacket and Skirt
So much velvet!. It made a mess of my machine. Lots of blue fuzz! The blue velvet was actually reclaimed fabric from a display at a department store that closed. The Ivory is a stretch satin and the lining is a standard polyester lining. The cording was a pain to sew because of having to do it all by hand. All edges are finished. I was aiming to make the jacket a complete garment. The only thing I would like to add is some kind of closer for the front. Haven’t found one I like yet. – The fabric is cotton and I got it on sale for $1.50/yd if memory serves me right. The dress is fully lined and interfaced. If I had the choice to make it again, I would have added boning in the bodice area. The back has eyelets and cording for a more fitted look. Blouse was purchased from Forever XXI and when worn correctly has a camisole under it. The complete outfit has a Navy Blue velvet sailor bolero/jacket to go with it. Also when in its compete form there are solid ivory tights and knee high, brown boots worn with it. (And of course a petty coat).
