A jacket made from Chinese-style paisley brocade. I used New Look 6519, with alterations to change the shape of the neckline/collar area and adding the buttons/loop closures. Also my first attempt at making piping from scratch.

Material Notes

brocade, microfiber (for the piping), buttons

    I love jackets like this, but have always been afraid to try my hand because it seems complicated (for my sewing skill, anyway). Yours looks awesome!
