I have found this jacket, by John Galliano for Dior, intriguing since I first saw it in the magazine Town and Country. It is available, at Dior boutiques, retail - a cool $4190. So, If I am to own this lovely, I must make it. However, what fabric?
Well, SawyerBrook just put this on their website, at an affordable price. I've seen this fabric locally, it is every bit as pretty as it is in the picture, and the tiny matelasse texture is perfect, however, locally it is $44.95 / yd.
Do I Need it? Non, mes amies. But, has it ever been a question of need?
