This is a great price for a beautifully made garment that is bound to get you plenty of compliments.
My latest creation is a fitted jacket made out of an unusual bright violet bonded metallic textile. I designed this jacket inspired by the Neo-Victorian costumes worn by The Hunger Games character Effie Trinket; but you could wear it with just about anything!
I made this jacket by combining two of my favorite period patterns; a 1940's weskit pattern and a leg o' mutton sleeve pattern from the 1890's. This unlined jacket has a jaunty lapel collar that lies flat or stands up nicely as you prefer. Center front has a decorative frilled placket accented with ruched fabric and silver tone metal buttons in two different sizes. The two-piece shaped sleeves point down over your hands and are trimmed with ruching and the smaller size buttons. The gathered sleeve heads are stiffened and stand out full and puffy and are decadently Neo-Victorian! This fabric is bright, shiny and futuristic looking but the style is reminiscent of a bygone age.
If you want to be an "Effie Trinket" you will need a fitted knee length dress or skirt, coordinating lavender make-up, wig, and of course a large flower choker and fascinator.
Measurements of this garment:
Approximately size 8
Bust 36" At Very Most
Waist 28" At Very Most
Hips 36" At Very Most
Sleeve length 26"
If you are smaller this jacket will fit well; if you are larger than stated dimensions this jacket will be too tight. Please take wearing ease into consideration and also what you might want to wear underneath jacket since a top or skirt waistband will add dimension and may make the jacket too tight for you.
Please don't hesitate to convo me if you have any questions at all about this item or how to measure yourself to ensure a good fit. I cannot accept returns for reason of fit so please verify your sizes before purchase; Thanks
