Description

The fabric for this jacket is a hand dyed brocade polyester/cotton mix.The jacket is fully lined with anti static lining and the collar and lapels are taffeta.
Not a very easy jacket to make as you have to put it all together inside out ,fully sew apart from the sleeve hems then pull it all through the sleeves and hey presto there it is you hope.

    Hi G! Beautiful work, beautiful jacket! What you have done is make a jacket with a “bagged lining” Tricky but fun. You can also do it by sewing the sleeve hems as well, leave an opening in one of the sleeve seams, and pull it all through that. As for me, I actually enjoy inserting a lining by hand, but I love to make things more difficult than they need to be ;-)))
