Welcome back, if you follow me on Instagram and Facebook you'll be familiar with some of these pictures.Today I'll be talking about one of my favorite pieces every to come from my studio, a black Matadore Jacket.


This beautiful jacket was inspired by this B. Viveros painting, I know Pinterest loves me, the reason being it sent me this picture. Which I just had to recreate, though I'm not sure that I did his work justice.

I started with the Burda pattern 7303 as my base using a black suiting (Unknown Fiber Content, Unknown Origin) the fabric was given to me by my maternal Grandmother who was always a huge supporter of my sewing career being a very accomplished seamstress as well.
