Better late than never

It´s Burda 2008/09/134 and the fabric is from tha ugly fabric swap in Kiel, unknown fibers, quite shiny and I would say that it looks more purple than the pictures will show
 The jacket is completely interfaced by fusing tricot interfacings on every part of it, I did this probably 3 years ago...sew the shell and left it....I think I lost the lining I bought for it.... There is pocket with plackets in the seams, hard to see on the pic
 A couple of weeks ago I decided to do something about it and found a new lining in stash that are quite heavy and I think it´s supposted to be lining in furs. I decided to do a hidden placket and used an old pattern from Neue Mode  for it
 This is absolutely my favourite hidden placket tecnique! No bulk! bagged the lining and used two articles in Threads for instructions
 Green buttons from the stash
The only thing that I don´t like about this jacket is that the sleeves are3/4, that´s due to lack of fabric and maybee it´s becourse I´m not used to it.... I plan to knit wristwarmers that match so I can wear it outside when it gets a little warmer

I love that color combo. Don't know why this was considered a bad fabric. Cute jacket!
