Pattern Review - McCalls 4972



As promised yesterday, here are some images of Georgia's stunning new jacket. The fabric is our very pretty 100% cotton velvet with embroidered detail - 'Parisian Fair'. A special touch is added with the striped grosgrain trim in 'Rouge'.







The pattern used is an old favourite - McCalls 4972 view D. Georgia omitted the patch pockets and instead added a sweet detail of the mock bow-front belt detail, stitched at the front and around the waistline of the jacket. It is such a lovely touch and adds a nice contrast to the subtle embroidery of the fabric design. I would never have thought that this velvet and the trim could marry up so well together, but there you have it. The genius of Georgia. And, of course, teamed with the 'Rouge' silk satin peasant, the look is complete.





PS. Please come back for a visit tomorrow. I feel it's high time I had some giveaways for you lovely people out there, who absolutely make my day by visiting this blog and leaving your lovely comments.

I'm now off to watch the Beijing opening ceremony... Goodnight x
