By the Sea - Jacket (almost) complete!

I already showed you the back of the jacket in the last progress post, but I'm almost finished now! But let's get back to the details:

Middle layer: Stiff tulle (neon orange but will be invisible), Upper layer: Marine satin, Lining: Blue Tafeta

These were the fabrics I used for the bustle part of the pattern! I was seriously fabric constricted as I only had 4.5m of the marine blue satin and 2.2 m of the stripey fabric. And even though I tried hard, I was not able to make the bustle from the stripey fabric. But I think it looks rather good this way!

I sewed up the front and added the sleeves like this:

There was even enough small scraps to make a nice neck insert (help, what's the correct word for that?):

This is how it looks worn (this time with the correct butt pillow and the skirt I made before):

And I this is where I had to stop as I need the corset to fit the jacket over it. And the corset is in the making, but still not finished - I will ask my boyfriend to cut up the steel... ;) So, stay tuned for the front closure and a full outfit. Soon!

@ Ms Misantropia: Thanks! But actually, the pattern fits me rather well so I don't have to tailor too much...

Die Stoffe passen echt gut zusammen und man kann die Silhouette schon super erkennen! Das wird bestimmt total klasse, wenn noch das Korsett dazu kommt, bin gespannt!

Das sieht ja schon toll aus und die Stoffe harmonieren wundervoll. ♥

@ AvA: Danke! Ich finde auch das der Schnitt perfekt für so maritime Strefen ist!

@ Lorkyn: Ich freue mich da auch schon drauf! Und das Korsett ist auf einem guten Weg, Ich denke dass kann ich Montag zeigen...

@ Fräulein Nachtschatten: Danke sehr! Ja, der blaue und der Streifenstoff sind wie füreinander gemacht! Und das mit der passenden Fransenborte war auch ein Riesenzufall!
