Here are some photos from the jacket in progress to include me wearing the jacket with a camisole after I finished and pressed the cardiganized front and neck edges to show the fit prior to applying the trim. There are more photos of the trim details on the Flickr set.
|Jacket in progress - experimenting with placement of mesh strips and medallions|
I then applied the trim using 1/4" Steam a Seam strips on the back of each of the two sparkly stripes on this mesh fabric. I'm still playing with the placement of the neck and front strips and how I want the medallions to look. They could be removable, using snaps. The mesh doesn't ravel so I could just cut the strips diagonally like ribbon and leave them hanging.
