Silk Ribbon Embroidered Jacket

I had been embroidering on my Jacket, but it became a UFO (Un-Finished Object) when it got too warm out to wear it anymore! So now that it's starting to get into cooler weather I got it out and started working on it. I added sweetheart roses in 7mm variegated silk ribbon.
I use a fade away quilters pen to draw on my ideas for placement, if I like it I stitch it in.
Both sides are similar but not exactly mirror, it took me a few days of looking at it to decide that I wanted to lapel that crosses over to have a longer motif.
Now I'm adding in beads, as soon as I get done beading the Jacket will be finished!
