Silk Dupioni Ring Bearer's Outfit
Jacket is OOP Vogue #1313, knickers are Children's Corner "Michael", shirt is Burda. Jacket & knickers are underlined with silk organza and lined with silk charmeuse. Underlining hand stitched to silk dupioni with silk basting thread. Jacket hem is interfaced. Jacket sleeves shortened both above and below the elbow. Jacket altered to add a little extra tummy room. Knickers were shortened both above and below the crotch, width also added to knicker cuffs. Shirt is silk batiste fused to German (batiste) interfacing.
I was thrilled to have this project included in Threads Magazine, issue #161, July, 2012, in Reader's Closet.
