Return of the CJ

Work has progressed a bit on the jacket.  I have the fronts and backs put together and side seams sewn.  I'll sew the sleeves together soon and attach them.  To the side is a picture of what I've accomplished so far.  I think I'm happy with it.  But not altogether.  I probably should have laid it out so the silver stripes could up and down instead of across.  Oh well.  I'll just have to live with it. I have made one other decision though.  I'll be using the silk charmeuse as a blouse instead of a lining on this jacket.  I purchased some nice black anti-stat to substitute for the silk.  

I'm sorry the picture is so dark; unfortunately the lighting isn't that great in here at night.
