Thanks for your kind words, Rene. Didja see the details of the jacket on the second post? It's machine embroidered with beads hand attached. Also made slacks to match. Material was from Joanne's (not expensive), but I don't remember the fiber content. Must have poly in it cuz it washes up beautifully. I should burn a piece and see if I can identify it.

I like this jacket. What pattern did you use?

RE: Dress and jacket

It's Simplicity #5451, called Easy Chic. Jacket has a mandarin collar, short or long sleeves, is lined. Dress has princess seams with a slit in one seam from hem to mid-thigh. I embellished the jacket with machine embroidery and hand beading. I used a purchased frog to hold the jacket closed right below the collar.
