I finished my Jacket-And-Skirt-Project!
The cut for the jacket is quite simple, waist-high with a lapel collar. I took this pattern from Burda, but I had to make some adjustments, yet I'm not 100% content with it.
|Lovely buttons, aren't they?|
For the inlay, I used royal blue satin. It's such a wonderful colour, isn't it?
The skirt is a highwaisted one with shirring on the side and lacing over it. In the middle of the back, there's a zipper.
For the hem, I used this time a special machine stitch which makes an almost invisible hem. It goes much faster then by hand and you can see the little stiches only if you're looking very closely.
