In previous blog I covered the making of the skirt.
The jacket seemed at first to be a lot easier.
Well it wasn't.
I put the jacket together using red silk dupioni for both top and lining.
I tried it on the doll and the sleeves were too tight at the forearms.
I used the last of the fabric, I ordered more red silk but who knows when it will get here.
So I decided to throw it away and wait for the silk to arrive.
I took a break and then decide to open the seams where it was too tight and add 1/8" hoping it will
solve the problem.
Relieved I went on with the top layers.
I used silk organza in black, burgundy and light red.
I put the organza jacket together and attached it to the bodice using hand stitching.
Once this was all done, I started working on the shoulders.

And this is how it came out.
Till next time stay tuned for the next outfit.
Live long and prosper.
