The shoes were the inspiration for the jacket, the colours as well as the trim were important to him, the fit and finish were important to me, as you can see the jacket fit very well.
I forgot to take pictures (I can see Denise rolling her eyes LOL!!) of the inside with the the red piping joining the violet lining to the black facing. The red piping is to honour the red soles on the shoes and the rivets are to match the tops of the shoes. Whew!!! It was a job, so rewarding in the end.
Now I'm working on a second jacket in black and gold... keep you posted!

Along with having the grandkids up for a week at a time a couple of times I have stayed out of trouble LOL! We also took a quick trip to Halifax, picture on the left, there are only a few weeks in the summer as it is, it's no wonder it flew by!
