Gengal (Jean Ann Tonge) Category: cotton

Jacket & Skirt are made of 100% cotton denim. Skirt is 6 gore, mid calf, with elastic waist, and top stitched hem. The Jacket is also made of the same 100% cotton denim, reverse appliqués are made of **(100% Cotton) **batik and other quilting cottons. The appliqués were interfaced with "Fusi Knit" interfacing to keep the weight similar to the denim. A wash away stabilizer was used in the embroidery process. Appliqués have been simply outlined with machine embroidery (sorry I don't have a fancy machine) & does not overwhelm the fabrics used. Swarovski crystals have been applied into some of the
embroidery around the appliqués and also as an emphasis on the collar points. Medium square beads were placed in a couple of the larger appliqués as another focal accent. The front & back of the jacket is lined in **(100% Cotton) **batik, that matches one of the appliqués. Following the pattern instructions, the sleeves were not lined. **Jean buttons in black were used as a closure for the jacket, down the front & on the sleeves.
