The Making of a Jacket Part Deux

In my previous post I showed the drape of the jacket. The pattern was adjusted for fit and now ready to be created in final fashion fabric. The fabric I've chosen for this design is a medium weight Wool Pebble Crepe in Navy Blue.  It's funny that navy blue has become a big part of the collection. You see I was a catholic school kid. I wore navy blue and white school uniforms. When it was time for me to go to high school, I begged my mom to let me go to public school.  Wanted to be done with uniforms and express my personal style. But somehow when creating this collection Navy and White just seemed so right. Of course these are not the only colors, stick with me and see the collection progress!
