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.
