I know some of you were over in the UK not so long ago, on the terrific Jacket Tour. You will, no doubt have enjoyed seeing these two examples in the Museum of London.
However, if you were unable to make the trip, then here is your chance to see them with close-up details of the stitching.
It is very difficult to have a clear preference, though I like the graphic effect of this simple barberry design.
Here you can see how the design works at the detail level.
Not only are there the jackets - there is also a skirt which I think is just fabulous.
Look at this - I would love to stitch one to wear - it doesn't look difficult to execute once drawn. Below you can see a tout ensemble with jacket and skirt. Top see these images and many more details of the embroidery close up, just click here to visit the Museum of London.
