Oh, Nancy, what a beautiful jacket! You have wonderful technique and it shows so well here. If I were you I'd never go to a clothing store again! :)

The trim, buttons, and fabric choice turned this simple style into a stunner! I'm so glad you were able to get the sleeves to work for you.

Very, very pretty jacket! Love the fabric/trim/buttons combo! And thanks for the heads up about the sleeves; I've got this pattern in the 'maybe someday' pile and I'll certainly check the sleeve fit!

Nancy, you got it done! :) It looks fabulous. Would love to see a pic of it on you. I do like that trim the best. Question: Why did you choose to fuse the fronts and underline the back with organza? Is there a significant difference in the way the fabric drapes?

Nancywin said...
I think the organza gives it a softer drape because the front seems a little firmer than the back. Actually, I would have done the whole thing with organza, but I didn't have enough. None of our stores here sell it and I didn't want to wait to order it online.

Nancy, as I commented on your blog, you have a jacket that is classic and you will find you will wear it for a long time. Great job! And I admire you patience...

I just love your beaded trim. It was well worth your effort, as it really takes this jacket to the next dimension.

A beautiful jacket with stunning trim. I overlooked this pattern for a chanel type jacket. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Nice work! You can pick up a chain for the hem at any hardware store. I go to Home Depot where I have several choices.

Thanks for the tip. Actually, I went to our local OSH the other day and bought some chain for .99 a foot. I will post pix when I sew it in
