Wow. That's all I have to say. Every time I look at that lining, I smile. Maybe the insertion could have been better - there are a few tiny puckers along the top that don't seem to want to press out - but the combination of fabrics just makes me happy.
I still have to attach the lining to the sleeve hems and finish the bottom, but the facing part and the neck seam are done.
Before I sewed in the lining, I dealt with the pocket issue. I've been flip-flopping between patch pockets and faux pocket flaps, and I finally went for the patch pockets, mainly because I had two scraps of boucle big enough to make pockets. They are lined in the silk as well, and since I have 6 buttons and only need for the jacket front, the last 2 will go on the pockets.
I am so loving this jacket.
