I had a yen for a causal summer jacket, something I could wear with jeans or a summer dress
I found this pattern in a book I have, the pattern is downloaded from the books website, all 61 pages of it!
Step 14 caused me some grief but eventually I managed to get it stitched together.
Originally the fabric was purchased to make a shirtdress, its Brushed Cotton from Fabworks Online.
The lining is left over from a yet to be blogged about Edith blouse and the sleeves with left over polyester lining.
The button is from my tin of
old vintage buttons !
The only thing I am not happy about is that the lining of the pockets show slightly around the edges.
In other news I was lucky enough to go to a Liberty Remnant sale a couple of weeks ago at Alice Caroline’s Studio, a barn in the hamlet of Conderton on the edge of the Cotswolds, so very close to home.
I came away with this small haul.
So that should keep me busy for a while!
