Military-Style Jacket

Added Jan 5, 2015

The idea behind this garment was to create a feminine military-style jacket. The jacket is fully lined and topstitched and features epaulettes, decorative buttons, a zipper closure and princess seams for a fitted and feminine look.
I used Imagewear pattern M1164 from My Image Magazine issue Winter 2011/2012.
The jacket is modeled by my sister.
This is by far the most time consuming garment I’ve sewn, and also the most rewarding to finish!

      Thanks!! I’m not even sure which type of fabric this is but I bought it at a store that held mostly upholstery fabrics.
