This was a commission to make a bolero jacket to match a bought dress for a summer wedding in Wales; hence the lack of confidence in the weather! It is cut in a single piece with the shaping mostly coming from 2 deep pleats at the back neck.  The finish is a flat binding pressed under and caught by hand.  This enables the decoration on the dress to be glimpsed through the jacket in a way that would not be possible had it been lined.
