Made from vintage chenille bedspread of the 50’s and gold mid-weight upholstery fabric, this open front jacket is elegant while being understated. Due to the thinness of the chenille, 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. The collar is styled to be worn up or down. Large open style cuffs allow for the cuff to be left down for a full white look or rolled up to expose the same gold fabric of the collar and lined lapels. The cuff opening is on top of the hand, rather than on the outer wrist, to give interest and uniqueness to this one-of-a-kind jacket. My jacket designs are often inspired by patterns from the past with my own twist to make it unique.
