Red Swing Jacket
Penny Muncaster-Jewell

This outfit was a challenge. I really wanted to create a very bright red, even after discharging the black silk organza. Normally when I discharge and paint the resulting colors, although great tend to go darker. I used Vermillion, Cardinal, and a touch of Shimmer Oriental Red, Bengal Pink. Amazingly this came out the exact shades I was looking for! I have since been able to reproduce this color. The jacket pattern is a Simplicity 4355 Pattern. Although meant to be a lined fleece jacket I modified it to be single layer unlined organza jacket. I loved the way this collars falls. The jacket was pieced using the Pojagi tiny French seams.

A single button and loop closure was added to close the jacket.

This item is for sale $400. It is approx a size 14.

The Sky is not the limit, nor are the stars. It’s your imagination!
