Another jacket

Last summer and this winter Priscilla visited India and brought back wonderful sari fabrics -- two layers that are sewn together with rows of hand stitching.

 Priscilla selected one to make a jacket from for herself, and started by adding some colorful fabric strips.

 I forgot to take a picture of my fabrics before I started, but found a woven black fabric in my stash of fabrics from Priscilla's other trips, along with a couple of thin green and red strips, to use with my sari fabric.

The jacket isn't lined, but needed shoulder pads, which Priscilla pinned into place. The front band is a soft black corduroy fabric.
