I decided to change the side panels to the red lining. It looks much better now. I will put the stripes from the same lining along the hemline, centre front line and neckline. And the hem of the sleeves of course.
All seams in lining are hand stitched now – the whole jacket start to look as jacket. I like it.
I am checking different kind of trim.
I have just ordered 2 from the Fournituren.nl (in bordeaux colour) and if these will appear not good I will visit a haberdashery shop in Arnhem – they have really lot’s of trims. I am sure I will find something.
The Chanel Legend exhibition gave me some extra ideas about the trims so I can always try to make my own.
Till the trim arrive I will start working on a trousers and a jacket for my mother.
She was at the hospital for almost two weeks recently and she is going again this week. She has to follow special treatment to be able to be operated. At this moment her heart is in not so great shape. I was hoping she will spend Xmas with us however at this moment nothing is sure. Let’s wait and see.
