French Jacket #2

This jacket is made of wool/poly suiting with barely visible gold metallic threads woven through. The fabric was very shifty so I underlined the jacket with silk organza. Because there were no continuous lines of one color running either vertically or horizontally, I hand quilted the silk dupioni lining to the outer. Pattern is Vogue 7975. Tulle and bead trim is from Soutache Chicago. Outer is a cheapie from Fashion Fabrics Club that I didn't love until the jacket was finished. Now I adore it :-)
