my sheer jacket

I've made a jacket using the same pattern as "the jacket for the party in vain". I liked the pattern very much, but I also knew there was not much use of such lacy and sparkling jacket. So, I decided to make another for my everyday life.


sheer jacket

The fabric I used consists of two layers of very thin organza (attached lightly to each other). One layer is pale pink, and another looks, so to say, gold. This combination of the colors makes the fabric glittering under the faint light, and also gives a taste of pink under the daylight.
I used the pink layer for the right side.

  2. The jacket really does look great. Unexpected fabric choice, but you really do make great things with the unexpected.
