Grey Silk Embellished Jacket (Size 16)


I loved tailoring this outstanding silk fabric into a classic, cropped jacket with a pieced mandarin collar.  Embellishment is accomplished with mohair yarn couched onto the design motif, and black metallic free motion embroidery that serves to accent the impact of this beautiful print fabric.  Many tones of warm grey, black, and a very soft greyed blue combine in this fabric.  Fully lined with a poly/lycra crepe, this cropped jacket features waistline front seaming, slot buttonholes, banded sleeves and shoulder pads.  Classic shoulder pads are BACK big time in high fashion these days.  Why?  The wider the shoulder the smaller the rest of you looks.  This is not an exaggerated shoulder, but classic, classic, classic!  I decided to mix the buttons:  3 black, one black with rhinestone, and one silver metallic, but I'm happy to change to all black buttons - but I  include them for you to decide on your own.   A one-of-a-kind custom made garment.
