Reworked Steampunk Hippy Velvet Jacket

My new(ish) overlocker (serger) is leading to much sewing fun as I am re-working my way through crates of vintage textiles ... this hippy 70s velvet skirt has been reinvented as a 30s style little loose fitting jacket (my design) with a padded stand up collar inspired by an original 30s evening cape ... corsage trim made from the scraps ... if you look closely, you will see there is a bud dangling from the flower attached by an overlocked chain of thread.

This was the 30s velvet cloak which inspired me ... the collar on this was stuffed with kapok & it was also ruched ... looking at the photo now I can see I was quite restrained with the collar on the jacket!!!
