Rosebud Jacket by sakurafairy Rosebud Jacket by sakurafairy
I made this jacket for a contest held by Simplicity. The contest was to make a item of clothing using one of their "Threads" patterns. I picked this pattern because it reminded me of gentleman's coats from the 1700's, turned back lapels with the possiblity of lots of amazing embroidery.

I ended up doing quite alot of alterations to the pattern, exchanging the goofy (and impractical) ribbon for a simple hook and eye, changing the shape and length of the sleeves, and tailoring the jacket in general.

The jacket is made of brown worsted wool suiting that I was able to purchase on sale from Hancock fabrics (who else in their right mind would want to work with wool in the late spring?), and is lined with contrasting pistachio lining. The embroidery is done in pearl cotton in 5 colors and freshwater pearls. The stiches used are bullion knot, lazy daisy, and stem stitch.

This is beautiful! the lapels are a great detail and the hand embroidery and trim really make it come together as a neat garment.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! Vogue put out a similar pattern a few years ago that I stashed away for a rainy day - now I want to go home and cut it out! :)
