    Thought I would share - this is the latest thing to appear out of hte sewing room. 3 days of scratching my head as I have never done tailored sleeves and stuff before. Am really happy with it though and shall be wearing it lots











    Supposed to be made in wool but I don't like wool so used a nice medium denim and lined it with designer fabric

    Thanks Susie I wish it could be reversed thinking abotu it now lol

    The fabric in the lining totally screams "dress" to me though so I am gong to try to locate some more as it was imported from the States.

    Alexander Henry fabric is my favourite though and I have to add a little of his fabric to every project I do - it is kind of my signature I suppose

    That looks really great. Very professional, the lining is wonderful and I love the purple and black dress in the background.

    Lovely

    I love it when jackets have fancy linings, it's like a little secret. I have a plain black suit with a crazy purple and yellow lining..... makes me smile thinking about it when I am dressed all plain.

    Also love the dress in the background

    Thanks everyone

    I adore funky linings too - makes everything so much more colourful and fun!

    The purple and black dress was something I made for fun, sold it to a client for a special event but she fell sick last minute so I gave her a refund and kept it!

    May put it back up for sale eventually though

    I love the lining, it's so unexpected!! You'll have to flash to people now! (Not literally!!) It's a really nice jacket. What sort of buttons are you going to use?

    I saw the first couple of piccies and thought that's neat and then I went 'wow' to the next ones, really a surprise, excellent. Wouldn't mind one in black or white too! Talking about linings, my mum's family are Portuguese/Welsh and at my uncle's funeral our cousin wore a suit lined with the national flags of these countries, like you said, he flashed every now and again too!!!

    Thanks DEbbie, Netty

    I am using a slate effect button for the jacket - 3 on each cuff and then 8 on the front - kind of double breasted but only 4 functioning.

    I wore it this morning to go the shop and got some odd looks when the lining went on display hehe
