Description

This is a Medieval style jacket I designed recently for a friend’s wedding. The bride chose her own fabrics and I adapted an old princess line dress pattern to create a jacket. The dress underneath was something the bride already owned (but wasn’t the right shade to match the jacket) so I turned it inside out and overlaid it with the lace used on the lower sleeves.

Material Notes

Fabrics: Turquoise silk, gold lace, pale blue anti-static lining and satin ribbon, Fastenings: 2 large hook & eye fasteners and ribbon lacing at back

Difficulty

Intermediate

    How very beautiful! Your creative thought to use the underside of the dress and overlay it with lace was such a grand idea! All I can say is that the overall look is a fantasy come true!

    Very lovely, especially like the way you altered her dress to match.
