This jacket is wonderful because it is both functional and stylish. Function comes from the four pockets hidden inside the jacket and the center front zipper closure. Style is black beaded lace lined and underlined with nude silk broadcloth. I purchased the lace fabric years ago while visiting Denver. The jacket pattern is the Flounce about Jacket from saf-t-pockets.com, a pattern company that specializes in travel garments.
The jacket packs well; an underlining minimizes wrinkles. You could wear this jacket with both jeans or trousers, depending on your taste.
The lace is embroidered with 3" long sequin chains which move when you walk which is fun if you like attention.
The jacket won Honorable Mention in the 2012 Midnight Magic Competition sponsored by the Independent Pattern Company Alliance.
This is a view of the inside of the garment. Two pockets hang from each front waist band, and the peplum skirt hides the bulk stored in the pockets.
