Once upon a time (really about two years ago) I got a fabric shop gift card for representing my tailoring school in TV. A year later I visited the shop and looked for something special - something really bold. This was the one I found. The pink line is really a defect but I turned it to an effect.
As I really wanted to make something one of a kind I decided to make two embroidered birds for the pockets. Birds are embroidered onto felt and hand stitched to the pocket.
Jacket has a yellow silk lining - so pretty inside out. Pockets are also lined.
Pattern is self drafted.
This has been a fun project as I really love sewing jackets and coats and I also found with this project that I would like to learn different embroidery techniques.
