The original Issey Miyake Ribbon Jacket.
I plan to use a combination of two patterns to achieve this look.
My primary motivation for this Jacket Journey is to use a Marfy pattern, to see how I like the pattern company. I chose this particular Marfy pattern because of its design lines with lots of seams to allow for alterations. (It has many more seams than the Vogue pattern above.) A two piece sleeve design is also included.
Fabric and Embellishment Choices:
The fabric for the jacket is a raisin colored wool tweed. Here are some of the lining choices I am considering:
Handpainted silk charmeuse lining option with raisin wool tweed
Silk chiffon lining option with raisin wool tweed
Two French silk ribbons for the embellishment:
These ribbons will be joined together with Steam a Seam Lite before appliqueing them to the jacket. Here are some closeups of the ribbons placed the way they will look on the final jacket.
