basis of this fun piece is a rust corduroy woman’s tailored jacket,
size Small. The size runs rather small, so I would suggest considering
the jacket as an XS or as a super fitted small.
I chose a William Morris theme for the jacket, using three different
pieces in the back, the largest of which is the “Anemone” pattern,
which I then framed with a daisy border. In addition, I used the very
famous “Fruit” fabric on the collar of the jacket, which I in turn
adorned with a single stitched row of beading. On the front, I used
“Anemone” again for two large tailored appliques to frame the pockets
and tie the piece together.
I then proceeded to cover one of the lapels entirely with a mix of
assorted buttons and crystal accents, flowers, butterflies, single
crystals. On the other lapel, I added a stunning focal piece made of
ribbon work and of a fairly large real vintage cameo, nicely carved and
set in what truly looks like a massive gilded frame. For a final fun
touch, I beaded the heart of each flower on the front fabric with a
single lilac freshwater pearl, for a perfect jeweled floral look.
A very fun jacket to wear with jeans or to give some pizzazz and spunk
to that evening little black dress you like so much and do not want to
part with. One thing is certain, this is a unique jacket that will
transform your look on command!
