When I convinced my boyfriend that I needed pictures of the Gala nocturna jacket, I also asked him for pictures of the rest of the stuff I sewed for him. So I can proudly present you - with less than a year after the event ^^- my pretty boyfriend and the first jacket I sewed for him! By the way, thanks for my awesome boyfriend for modeling and taking most of the pictures himself. Due to public demand, I also varried the "face cover" that helps him staying anonymous on my blog. If you have additional request for pretty/sexy/simply amazing cover ups, just tell me! ;)
I used the pattern Simplicity 2333 for which we made this mock up. The only changes we made were to lengthen the sleeves and the coat tails. I also made the pockets functional because I don't think that useless pockets should be sewn at all. The fabric (upper and lining) and the buttons were again chosen by him as with the Gala jacket. I have to admit, this guy has style!
I did manage to take some in progress shoots of the organdy I used to strengthen the back and the shoulder pads I sewed in by hand:
I also made some detail shots with higher contrast so you can marvel at the buttons:
