It's been 4 years since I made a jacket like this, so the details are slowly coming back to me. This one won't be "couture", but there's still a fair amount of hand-stitching with all the trim and buttons!
I picked up 2 different trims at Joann's yesterday, not quite sure what combination would look best. Did I mention that I had 3 kids in tow, so I felt like I was on Project Runway... "Designers, you have 30 minutes before the children start screaming for Chicken Nuggets and French Fries and most trims will only have 3 yards available while you need 6. Ready? Go!"
I found 2 that I really liked, and while I knew they worked together, I wasn't sure how to work in some fringed tweed and what combination would look best. So, once we got home, it was time to play...
I'm afraid that I should've chosen a button with more black and less silver, but hindsight is 20/20. Time for more hand-stitching while I attach the pockets to the jacket fronts. I'm using Simplicity 2284 this time (I can't find my Vogue pattern from last time), view D with 3/4 sleeves and added trim at center front, neck, and hem.
