The striped wool fabric for this jacket is woven by me, and it was heartbreaking cutting out the pieces, knowing that if I mess up, there is no way that I can just go and buy some more fabric and putting up a warp is really time consuming so that is really not an option either.
A tricky fabric since the edges frayed A LOT. The black wool is store bought.
the patterns is done by me as usual and the jacket features, hand sewn buttonholes, bright red satin lining, pockets with the same lining as the jacket it self, a lot of love and pattern matching. But a lot of the matching are actually accidental, I made sure that the striped in the waist would match and then the most of the other stripes said “OK we will cooperate!”.
