Looking around my workroom my eye was caught by the shimmer of the silk. This silk is woven with a deep burgundy silk thread running counter to a green silk thread. I was thinking of what to put with it when i saw a remnant of a silk jacket i had made years ago for a customer. That floral print became the jacket trimmed in silk.

The floral looked asian to me so i went with a chinese style jacket. The ivory leaf buttons are from a shop in ann arbor, now closed.

The skirt is all silk except for the lining which is a mixture of cotton and polyester. I have a close-up of the lining which is a chocolate brown color.

The slit in the skirt is both sexy and functional. I wanted a easy to alter hip-hugging skirt. I most likely can alter the skirt to fit your shape.

Current measurements (i can change the size within reason). Waist measurement in jacket: 34.

Botton circumference of jacket: 40 making more room in the jacket is very possible. Jacket length: 23 mid-shoulder to hemline of jacket. Skirt length: 40 it can be any length. Waistline in skirt: 35 i have not yet made the buttonhole so the waistline is most adjustable. I also have not yet finished the cuffs on the jacket.

I can make french cuffs to use the monkey-fist cuff links shown in the photos, or use the oriental design buttons with one buttonhole each. This is truly an original inspiration from my workroom.

For more on how to dress creatively, artistically and for fun and expression see my blog at michigansmom. This item is made of silk and cotton, faux ivory, poly blend.
