Its my birthday….I am just celebrating it at work so I have to look really professional. I choose this lovely fabric with a sheen and made a jacket. It more feels like tafetta or some drapery fabric but I love it because it has an expensive look. I went for a natural scheme since I am a big fan of neutrals.
The jacket has a standing collar and tucks from underneath the bustline to the hemline. The sleeve have a bat wing effect with also tucks. French seams are used to neaten up the edges. I then found some lovely buttons made out of coconuts to put on it.
I used a really old Simplicity (Project Runway) 2588. It might be some years ago but I think I look really great.
The skirt is a basic pencil skirt with high split at the back and four buttons sewn on the waistline for
Based on the sheen of the jacket against the lighting of the camera I really hope all the details can be seen.
