Jacket

Shawl Collar Jacket

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!

  1. ‘Small’ haul? I wonder if you’ll pluck up the courage to actually cut into them…..The jacket lining is a nice surprise on the inside and I didn’t notice the pocket lining until you pointed it out:)
