Elegant Jacket

White Chenille with Gold Accents

An elegant jacket made from a vintage white chenille bedspread with gold accents from home decor fabric is a design from Inspired by Judy. The jacket is fully lined with soft white bridal lining. The gold trim piping continues from the side seam along the bottom, up the lapel, around the collar, down the opposing lapel and bottom edge to the other side seam.  While the collar can be worn up or down for two distinct looks the large open style cuffs can also be up or down. When turned up, the cuffs expose the same gold fabric of the collar and lined lapels.  The cuff opening on top of the hand is a unique feature for this one-of-a-kind jacket.
