I went snoop shopping again, it's as much fun as I can have without spending money, and it's educational to boot. This was an outing to explore what other designers do for jacket trim. This would have totally worked for the pink jacket but I wanted to try the fringe, so this will go in my fashion folder. There was a lot to like about this jacket, the cut is really interesting and the details were executed really well.
The braid on this jacket is readily available, I think they may even have it at Joann's. The tulle or netting is probably cotton, so that is a bit of a specialty item, but you could probably substitute a sheer fabric or something else in it's place.
The jacket is fitted but not crushing, the darker peplum is good for those of us who want to camouflage a wider bottom. The braid and buttons can be easily obtained. I love the silk charmeuse lining, bias binding on the facing. the inside pocket, and the grosgrain button closure detail (although functional it is cumbersome to operate). The fabric was very stiff, so I am assuming that it is fused to interlining, not a big fan of that. In contrast to the other jacket I snoop shopped last week, I like that this one is impeccably finished on the inside. Here is the matching skirt, with the same details. While this is not my style, I really enjoyed seeing fine workmanship.
Close up of seam and trim.
