Tuxedo Jacket in black and white stretch satin, embellished with pieces of organza, lace, sheer dot mesh, soutash, zipper flower and machine stitching. Very Easy Vogue #V8673 pattern was used and features front and back princess seams, a close fit waist lenght style with various sleeve options. The jacket has a shaped hem, asymmetrical collar and is lined to the edge. This pattern style was perfect to color block the black and white satin. I embellished sections of the pattern using black sheer materials over the white satin sections in the body of the jacket; sheer black dot, black organza and black soutash design. The collar and cuffs are the only unembellished white satin. Additional trims include a zipper flower, a bold flat trim on the front and rhinestone buttons on the cuffs. I added geometric machine stitching on the front left panel to tie the angular shapes of the jacket together. The black-white color block in combination with the satin fabric and fancy trims makes this jacket an easy-to-wear dress-up party style.
