What materials did you use? I found this fabric in one of the wonderful Goldhawk Road shops in London about a year ago and kept it whilst waiting for this excellent Craftsy class. The lining is silk dupioni bought on the internet; the colour looked like a better match on my screen than it actually is. Learnt a lesson ...will get samples in future!

This is gorgeous and I love the fringe trim. Well done.

I love your jacket. The colour is great and I think your lining looks fine.

I love the colors. Did you use the selvade of the fabric as braid?

Beautiful job, Marianne! The trim is exquisite too. I'm finding a distinct lack of fabric shops near me offering a good range and I've tried the West End which is very pricey. Plenty of sari shops here so great silks, perhaps I'll take a trip to Goldhawk Road when I can afford money and space to even more materials!
