Janette's Jaffa Jacket
Meet our lovely customer Janette wearing her latest jacket made up by Lilyn Dressmaking in Mosman , Sydney in Tessuti's 70% Wool 20% Polyamide and 10% Cashmere Flannel - the same quality as the one made up by Georgia earlier. You can also see it on Tessuti's online fabric store in other lovely shades like Emerald and Fuschia and Dove Grey.
The backdrop fabric is 100% Cotton 'Painted Rose'.
Janette is a great sewer and usually makes all of her clothes , but when it comes to tailored jackets or coats , she prefers to leave it to the professionals.
Since we put her onto Lilyn Dressmaking , Janette has been so thrilled with the work and has been back again this winter for more jackets and a new coat. Hopefully Janette will come in again to show us. (...hint! hint!....) I have my camera ready Janette!
Lilyn has a great set up in her shop/workshop in the Mosman Cache ( opp. Accoutrement )- and is situated on the 1st floor. There is a shop full of samples - here you can chose a style you like or she can work with your own design ,then they are made up nextdoor in their workshop.
Check it out if you have a beautiful piece of fabric that you are too frightened to cut up. Tailoring is a fine art & the prices are very reasonable for this quality of workmanship. Call Lilyn on (02)9960 4001 for an appointment.
PS. I had to show you Janette's wonderful Axel Mano handbag. They now have a fabulous new store on Queen Street , Woollahra (note: the old location on Ocean St has been made a clearance shop ).You can call them on 02 9362 3756.
Their bags are also stocked in these great stores.
