Black velvet cropped jacket

This is a pattern I fell in love with right from the start. I liked the cropped length, the collar and the black color.
My love for colorful stuff makes it difficult to match things together sometimes, so I’ve been doing some conscious choices about using “neutral” colors for some projects that can be described as wardrobe basics.
This is one of those.
I used this nice warm black velvet for this jacket, it has a bit of stretch and I probably should’ve used lining that’s a bit stretchy too to take advantage of it…but I didn’t.
I bought this beautiful soft cotton in soft purples and greys to use as lining, but then decided to use up things from my stash instead. And therefore the lining ended up being light cotton canvas in light green (remainder from the back of this blouse) apart from the upper sleeve that are in cobalt blue (remainder from lining of this bolero). Well, why not? :D
The result is a jacket I love! And that’s easy to match with many different styles and colors :) Me happy :)

    As I am a fan of this pattern too I am very glad to see different versions! I like the cropped model and the way you made it just perfect. Velvet is beautiful noble and feminine fabric and it looks very nice on you:-) I like your work very much!

      Thank you Olga :) Can’t take credit for the blouse though, I bought it before I started sewing :)

    How nice to be neighbors on the page…I love this jacket because it’s ideal for my long dresses which are really hard to match with a coat. And I can understand you so well…I have the same problem with all my colorful clothes.
