The Making of Lorelle's Black and Purple Wool Jacket part 2
I must confess, this isn't really a "making of", but I wanted to show you the finished product to the last post, which was The Making of Lorelle's Black and Purple Coat.
So here it is. Doesn't Lorelle look great!? I love it how she paired it with a pair of black pants, but brightened it up with a blue mosaic printed bow tie blouse (the pants and the blouse are all Penelope Red too!).
The lady has style!
As you can see, the brocade is outlined throughout the jacket with piping in purple.
The jacket was made from a black wool twill (with a tiny bit of elastane for comfort), a vintage floral brocade in black, blue and purple, and fully lined with a purple silk.
It is so great to see this design being worn by its owner in such a fun way!
