Well this Jacket was initialy created as a dress but sadly at the time my expertise did not quite match the skill required to create it to a high enough standard,it was a advanced pattern and it was only the second garment i had made so reach for the sky if you wanna fly, anyway into the come in useful even if you never use it box it went as it was shot silk and i did not want to discard.
Anyway time passed and my skills increased greatly and i just had to do something with it. Well originally the biggest problem had been matching the seams,and they where all over the show,i sorted out the top to the midrif but alas midrif to skirt was to far out but with some niffty finger work,huffing and puffing i managed to come up with this bottom and turned it into a rather lovely jacket. Do you think.
