The last steps on the jacket took me a while, but finally I can post pictures of the finished jacket. I totally forgot to take photos from the inside. I’ve used a beautiful black silk for it, that I bought in New York too.
For me this is a souvenir jacket, most of the materials were bought during my stay in NY in October when I met up with Nancy.
This week I’m staying with my friend Valerie for a few days and she did the photos (thank you!). It’s a day with a lot of sunshine and wind, so the hair got a bit untidy. I think it’s nice to have a different location once in a while to have the pictures taken. We have been sewing together as well. I did a nice new bra, so more sewing news to follow.
I’ve posted quite a bit on the construction process already, so I’ll limit it to the photos now.
It was quite a lot of work to make this jacket, it still has a few fit issues, also resulting from using the thicker fabric. Those things do not hold me back from liking this jacket very, very much. It’s going in the closet for a while because it’s too hot to wear now, but will definitely wear it a lot next winter.
