Jill Tracy in Feaux
While you cant see all the detail in this fabulous jacket with tails, Jill sure looks amazing in these photos. Shot at her cd release party last week, Ms. Tracy was a knockout on stage and wowed the crowd as always!
I was looking for some kind of old fashioned looking fake monkey fur and I came up with doubling up on a fake fur that was kind of long, but not quite long enough.....it worked out really nice. It gave me some ideas for projects down the road, but we were pressed for time, and this is what we came up with. Very nice, if I do say so myself!
I'll try to post another photo of her jacket if I can get a full view shot. It was constructed of a sparklie overlay on a semi-shiny base. I added black sequins - hand stitched into a swirly design on the bodice back. Strips of the fur peeked out from under the bodice down around the tails in back. And then I made sheer arm warmers and trimmed those out with the same fur. Very sexy! Very dark rock and roll!
