What materials did you use? Dark purple brocade with copper embroidery from Mood fabrics, purple china silk lining, pro-weft medium weight interfacing.

What are you most proud of? The way it fits and the professionally made look.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use couture techniques whenever possible. I didn't underline this particular jacket, and I wish I had. I did install a full lining, including sleeves, so it feel great to wear. It would have been nice to catch-stitch all the seam allowances (they do behave fairly well, though).

Oh Cheryl this jacket is absolutely stunning! I can imagine how you must feel when you're wearing this. It looks so regal and the colour is divine!

Thank you, Chris! Found the fabric at Mood Fabrics online store. Thought I was going to lose it to one of my daughters. And I nearly sold it to a lady in the airport. Fun!

Thank you so much. The pattern is New Look A6162. I did ruffle the collar and raised the back neckline. I also included a full lining.
