The fabric is a fairly heavy wool, heather-like pink with a small fleck bought at my local fabric shop - but not cheap.
The lining is a beautiful rich burgundy satin that just makes the jacket slip on and off effortlessly.
The sleeves were sewn at least three times on both sides until they were almost perfect (I can still see the flaws).
The lapels were measured to the millimetre about a hundred times to try and make sure they matched.
Then I couldn't decide on buttons - so opted for covered ones.
However, I've worn this jacket loads of times and despite the colour it goes with almost anything.
