This smart jacket LILIES was commissioned by a 99yr old lady for a wedding; and she was very pleased with the outcome. I chose natural colours to compliment her. I used V8982 pattern which lent itself well to the applique of Lilies on the front corners, which were already on a skirt I bought for the project.
All fabrics were sourced from UK charity shops, chosen for embroidery embellishments and linen textures. At one point I decided it looked a bit beige, and added in the synthetic fabric which came from a devore print skirt. The eau de nil green voile and shiny pale grey and light blue satin lift up the jacket and add a bit of sparkle to the overall effect.
I bought a whole jacket just to get the two shell buttons, with beige and greeny sheens.
