Closeup of jacket - this was a scrumptious reversible wool/lycra blend from Charles Chang Lima - I used the grey pinstripe for the main fabric, and brought the hems to the front instead of the back to reveal the tan backside of the fabric. I couched grey yarns there for a smooth design transition...

Then, to carry through this accent of the reverse tan side of the fabric, I placed a seam at the fold of the front tuck on the pant and reversed the inside of that tuck - that is why the tuck looks light tan.... look closer at the pant photo...

It looks fabulous. Brilliant! The contrasting hem is such a neat idea. It looks as if the fabric had been designed for your pattern!
