We are enthusiast about these PLUS points:
We are a little less enthusiast about:
We created the jacket in white, Bouclé. We added a lining inlight blue 100% Silk. We transformed the assymetrical front into a straight-line front. This makes it perfect for attaching creative fringes. We made fringes out of the same fabric as the outer-fabric. And we used a thin ribbon.
Creative ideas: trims en fringes.
We quilted the lining to the outer fabric, according to the couture sewing techniques described in the book: "The Couture Cardigan jacket" by Claire Schaeffer.
This makes the jacket pleasant and comfortable enough to wear as a casual coat or long jacket.
The result: a beautiful, stylish jacket that you can wear all day, both casual and formal.
