Jacket and shorts made by Skristi

I took me FOREVER to make the correct fit for this jacket :) But the pattern is nice and I might use it again. Shorts were easy to make but I like the result also :) I made detailing with some silver (not sure how this color is called, it’s silver with warm golden shade) thread and I also pulled out some threads from the material of the jacket.
I would like my work to speak for me, but I notice myself reading other member’s comments on making clothes, so I try to be more communicative about mine also :) My friend Camilla modeled for me and my boyfriend took pictures, it was nice to cordinate the process. I am moving now so we were able to make a photoshoot (two outfits) and fill the minivan with our stuff in two hours :) Hope you like it, it’s always pleasant to hear the feedback :)

Material Notes

Should be something with wool because it’s quite itchy ;)

    Hi. I am trying to follow the pattern for this jacket, but am having trouble.

    Any advice, yours looks wonderful.

    Do you gave any pics of inside collar or work in progress?
