The Gathered Peplum Lace Jacket 1990's

This is another one of those jackets that have been stashed away.  This is an allover cotton lace with a scallop edge, lined in silk organza, there is a rayon seam tape used as a waist stay, the front cross over is held in place with a hook and eye, and snap.  The side seams are Hong Kong finish, and the sleeves have a stiff tulle ruffle to hold the wide sleeve head up.  




I love the little organza base for the thread loop on the waist.  It's almost invisible, and frequently I would hook the lace instead of the loop.

Thank you Tanya, will you be making one? Peplums are in now.

Lace is so popular again now, as are peplums. I think you found this just in time:)

Thanks everyone, it's a bit flat from being stored folded.

Did you make this using the YSL pattern with the live model wearing an ivory silk jacquard version with a short matching skirt wearing and the drawn version done in red with a long black skirt? I just pulled this pattern from my stash to remake. I love your version.

Hello Angela, No, this one was drafted from scratch. It originally had a wide black velvet sash, and a black lace skirt.
