Holiday Sparkle: Burda Cropped Sequin Jacket 08/2015 #109

This is a simple cropped jacket sewn using a sequined wool knit.  The lines of the jacket are very simple, with darts in the front, a center back seam, and two-piece sleeves.  As I'm trying to sew my stash as much as possible, I choose to sew this using fabric purchased years ago from Hancock Fabrics.  I always intended to sew a skirt with the fabric, but this simple jacket - Burda 08/2015 #109 - is something I'd wear more often than a sequined skirt.
The jacket is fully lined so I didn't finish any of the seam edges on the inside.
 I choose to use a contrasting, lighter weight fabric for the facings.
I added interfacing to the jacket hem and sleeve hems, as well as small shoulder pads.
Rather than bag the lining, I followed the instructions and hand stitched the lining in place at the hems.
The label is from Dutch Label Shop.  I've ordered from them multiple times and have been very happy with every label.
The only thing I don't like about the jacket is the closure. It calls for a decorative clip fastener. I couldn't find one, so I used a large hook and buttonhole.  It's okay, but next time I'll have to find something different.
The fabric, the lining, the interfacing, the shoulder pads, the thread, and the hook were all from my stash. Except for the closure, I'm pleased with the jacket!
