Glamazon Suit Jacket

Added Jul 1, 2012

This Starlet Suit Jacket is fit for a glamazon! I lowered the bust point to fit my long torso and it fits fab! The instructions for how to do this are on my blog for all you tall gals out there!
I made it with a lovely coral coating weight wool and lined it with navy charmeuse. I think the navy feathered flower just adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’!

Material Notes

Wool, silk charmeuse




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Classic, Vintage
Silk, Wool

    Stunning work! I’m so far only half way through Gertie’s course but already see that I would need a sabbatical to actually make the jacket :)

    The shape is so lovely and extremely flattering. Your sewing skills are immaculate! So finely executed. I aspire to make a jacket ! Beautiful.

    what a great jacket i like the colour, the 3/4 length sleeve and the way it sits on the hips, it would look fab with a full skirt.
