I created this jacket from royal blue sequin fabric and lined it with two layers of royal blue polyester. I used a medium weight interfacing for the stiffness needed. I created my own pattern for the jacket from a picture that Natalie sent me. I used a double Swaroski Rhinestone zipper in the jacket and created the Rhinestone snaps on the pocket flaps by using a simple prong snap closure and gluing a Swaroski Rhinestone in the middle of each snap. This jacket was made to match choir dresses that I made for each of Natalie's choir members.
