Bohemian Fringes

DSC01316

This pictures are at least a month old – I made them right after I shot the blue dress. But better late than never, right? The jacket is made out of home decor fabric – very structured and very thick, but also very detailed. I lined the whole thing with unbleached cotton muslin and finished the armholes with bias binding (using a slip stitch) – there was no way I was going to stitch through 4 layers and make even and tiny stitches!

I added two layers of fringes (one longer and the other one shorter) and embellished the collar with beads and irregular embroidery stitches. I chose blue, because originally, I wanted the jacket to go toghether with the dress, where I used the same beads at the neckline and the hem. But, as you can see, I decided to pair it with a skirt made out of an old hankerchief, which I made ages ago. The jacket can also be worn as a dress, but only of those who dare! :)
