First Jacket of the New Year

Look What Purchased Trim Can do!

I usually do not make raglan sleeve jackets ( not great for large bust) but this one works as the neck has so much attention.

The fabric is luscious boucle that I purchased at Mood on one of the ASG bus trips to NYC. 

I embraced the raw edge craze on the hem and the belt.  I wear it belted when I feel skinny - which is rare these days!

This trim is so great.  It is stitched to elastic and therefore makes it so easy to apply.

As for the lining - I used petersham for the neck facing and this 'what was I thinking when I bought this silk for a blouse' silk charmeuse for the body of the jacket.
Happy Sewing,
Michele P
