Jacket made with Fabric by Designer Ellen Tracy

This is a Jacket I made using Designer fabric by Ellen Tracy. This fabric was terrible to work with, it unraveled, stretched and shifted. When I use a fabric like this again I would fuse interfacing to the entire piece of fabric. I used a McCall pattern but altered the length of the arms. I lined the inside with a chartreuse colored silk and cotton blend. For an added touch I quilted the body of the jacket with cotton batting and made a label using the free motion sewing technique.
