Paris Trip Jacket

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use good strong silk for the lining; don't cut cost on the lining because there is so much hand stitching on it, it makes the whole hand stitching journey more bearable! And it forms the most important main support of jacket.

What you will need

  • Linen chenille and thai silk lining. I added 3 pairs of stitches covered hook and eye to close jacket up when necessary. 3 cm width of frayed fabric was used for the trim. I joined 2 stainless steel necklaces to make the hem weights. These necklaces cost more than 50% of total cost of jacket material.

Q&A with AliceT

Cara Michelle asked:
May I ask where you got the fabric? I wanted to finish my jacket before heading to Florence, but Mood fabrics ran out of what I ordered, I was so sad. I hope you enjoy your trip, you look stunning.
AliceT answered:
I bought fabric in local shop in city Miri Sarawak Malaysia. I don't think they do online business. Yes it was a great trip Paris, Belgium, keukenhof, st moritz, Zermatt & interlaken! Awesome places.
