This jacket was created using an Indian silk sari I purchased when I was in India in November . I had so much fun shopping for fabrics I could use in my work.
For this jacket I made nuno yardage and worked with my seamstress to design and sew this garment. I did this so I could get a jacket that fit sizes up to a 16. The design is so versatile it looks great on a smaller person as well. The collar can be worn in a variety of ways as well. It is really hard to seamlessly work that much fabric in my studio, so we went to sewing the pieces together. The jacket is fully reversible with a pocket on each side. The felted side is a completely different pattern than the silk side, so the wearer gets 2 jackets for the price of one. I think that is a good deal.
