Winter sewing finished - another Missoni jacket

Years ago I made an unstructured jacked from Missoni woollen fabric from Tessuti Fabrics in Sydney Australia. And years ago I bought more fabric to make another one. Earlier this year I started sewing, and sewing, and sewing (with a bit of unpicking thrown in too!) and, just in time for the Australian summer, I finished it:

It's a self-drafted pattern, and should be easy as there's little hemming - the bottom edge f the jacket is the raw edge of the fabric, and the front edges, neckline and arms are all bound with foldover woollen binding tape, also from Tessuti Fabrics in Sydney.

I lined the jacket with a silver-grey satin:

Thank you to my friend Megan of Meggipeg who photographed it for me.
