BON VOYAGE

I was working as a travel agent when I made this jacket which I wore on several cruise ship inaugurals.  I love the quilting waves that enhance the side panels.  This duster length vest was made of silk taffeta and iridescent organza.  The back panel is appliquéd and free motion stitched with metallic threads and embellished with novelty buttons.  The piecing on the front is done with a delicate French seaming technique that I learned from Chunghie Lee.  The technique is inspired by Pojagi, a traditional Korean wrapping cloth.
