    This was a real challenge, 10 different color fabrics (All black and white) sewn together in strips - first each end of material was cut into 45 degree angle, then the top and bottom of the stips were sewn together - which formed a tube, tube cut into different width strips, each strip laid out on the jacket pattern (not in any order) to form a "V" on the front, back and sleeves, all strips sewn onto eqyptian cotton, which was the base for the jacket, then added batting and lined, to quilt just sew (top stitch) down the lines.

    That would look great in my closet with my red turtleneck sweater and black slacks for winter or red tank top with a white skirt for spring and fall, here in SC. I have always worn red, black, and white. But any color would go with your jacket!! Clever....
