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).

Lovely!! I am also curious as to whether this is someone's dream-child or their is a pattern for it?

Hello! I know this is an incredible long shot given the amount of time, but do you possibly have any of this fabric left, or know of any out there still? I've been desperately trying to track down this particular brocade, and am having no luck. Thanks!

Sorry, but the small amount left over is being used in a corset. This came from Mood Fabrics in NYC, so you might contact them to see if they have a similar fabric.
