The navy silk shantung on this pretty little jacket had split on both shoulders, exposing the padding (unlike 80s shoulderpads it's intrinsic to the garment). I had a few yards of French millinery ribbon I got from this divine lady's French haberdashery stall on Portobello Road, and thought: yep, it's a match. Slinking the ribbon beneath the jacket's extravagant frogging was a bit fiddly, as were all those teeny tiny pickstitches, but I really like how it came out. Must now get around to the other shoulder. I think I'll do a contrasting ribbon.
