A short, A-line jacket with boxpleat sleeves in 3/4 length.
Unlined, as this is supposed to be a very lightweight summer jacket.
Completely interlined with a woven (cotton) fusible and worked with french seams throughout, so a lining wasn’t neccessary and the inside looks clean anyways (see detail picture).
The silk is hand-dyed in a very dark antracite and has a bit of a “shabby” look to it.
I embellished the finished jacket with melting powder and gold foil, which are usually used by quilters for surface design. It adds a bit of a paintsplash-chic to it, and I’m pretty satisfied with the results. It’s the “Bob Ross” feature on this jacket ;)
The pattern is self-drafted using the basic sloper from of my japanese sewing magazines.
