What materials did you use? Washable polyester & cotton tweed with washable polyester charmeuse lining

It's difficult to see, but the tweed is bright multicolor threads on white, so I added multicolor semiprecious beads to the braid. I wanted something to throw on with a brightly colored top and black slacks or even jeans. This class was wonderful ! I learned so much, and in looking over this jacket, I can see things that I can do better. Now I am ready to try a really nice wool tweed and silk dauphinois lining. Thank you for such a great experience!

That was silk "dupioni" lining, dauphinoise. Spell Check got creative on me before I realized it!

I love the beads added to the trim and your plaid-matching looks great too. I look forward to seeing you next jacket in wool tweed and silk soon!
