Here she is – there is not too much to say in addition to the review on PR, except that I added thin shoulder pads because I’m mouse shouldered.

One thing I’m still debating is whether or not to add some hand top-stitching on the red side. I have some soft gray silk buttonhole twist that might be nice. Will need to ponder that a bit more.

The shoulder pads are stitched to the seam allowance at the shoulder, and tacked to a small pieces of black fusible woven interfacing at the points. These are ready made, and composed of batting instead of foam. I wanted a pad that would drape softly and identically regardless of what side of the jacket I’m wearing.

I’m very happy with it – it weighs nothing, and it looks as good loose as it does belted because the silk organza interfacing stiffens the edges just enough to flare the jacket away from my body.
