Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international consultants. About living in Italy, the Veneto area near Venice; in Indonesia, central Java. Why we love the southeast of the United States and moved back from Italy. Our love for gardening, the botanical way. Sharing with you our manifold treasures from exotic places and even offering several in my Mariette's Back to Basics Boutique for others to enjoy as well as high end silver items from Giovanni Raspini, Italy.
For the St. Patrick's Festival of course one has to wear some GREEN. This year I did wear my self sewn jacket from a nice Italian cotton piqué. For the design I used a German Burda pattern; my all time favorite for excellent fit. Jacket has a one-button closure and a lapel. My notions I always get from Britex Fabricsin San Francisco. Just right-click the hyperlink and yes, they also do ship.
This jacket was a lot easier to sew; no lining!
Worn with an Escada jeans and Escada sleeveless rayon top.
