Burgundy Wool Jacket

I finished this jacket in March 2009.  It was intended as a proof of concept for my embroidered jacket project so that I could check the fit of my pattern.  Sadly the wool is a little wrinkled in these pictures.  I was just so excited to have finished it that I went a head and took pictures anyway. 🙂  The jacket is made of burgundy wool flanel an lined in pink silk.  The wool layer was hand sewn to test a few sewing techniques I wanted to try out and the whole jacket is complettely hand finished.  It is pinned closed in these pictures while I try to make up my mind as to whether I want to add ties or hooks and eyes.  For more pictures of this project please see my gallery.
