This doesn't feel 100% finished yet, it needs a lining, and something else...i'm not sure what. That suede jacket i've been pillaging just keeps going forever, I still have tons of stuff left to make things from, it's quite exciting. I wouldn't mind trying a tunic, they're simple enough shapes for a beginner at sewing.
The front bits are pockets from the suede jacket. The back is actually from the back of it. I painted with some gold fabric paint on the back.
The collar is some very old material, and then some of the cushion embroidery sewn on. The buttons are from a waistcoat .
Ta dah! I quite like it, it's toasty round the neck. I am going to line it in nice soft felt.
The gold detailing on the back, not showing up fabulously in this pic but I think it looks quite lovely in real life.
Detail of the front, please excuse grotty purple top, it's my shameful painting smock thing.
