Did I mention how much I love ikat?
This is my first (but not my last) iteration of Sandra Betzina's new Vogue 1385
with the lovely neckline. I will make it in a softer fabric, and perhaps skip the interfacing, as it seems to be prettier that way. But, I'm very happy with this
jacket...I lengthened it, removed the pleats from the sleeves and lengthened them, added a pocket and a narrow piping around the edges. The fabric is a stretch cotton jacquard, the reverse is as pretty as the chosen side. It is from
Emma One Sock.
It can be worn open, as shown, and also buttoned up as a light coat.
These are the buttons I used
and this is a close-up of the pendant, by the artist Charlotte Valestra...
We're hosting a birthday dinner for a dear friend next weekend, so I don't know when I'll get back in the studio...Have a great week!
