The jacket still needs buttonholes and buttons and some handstitching of the lining. Today I was sidetracked by the idea of combining it with the almost abstract floral fabric and made a skirt of it.
I bought the fabric initially with a shirt in mind, but changed plans when it arrived. This is better use of the fabric for me. The pattern is from an old Knip Mode issue (2007), and just a basic 8 pieces skirt with a small yoke on top. Now I have to find a few tanktops in the colors in the skirt (teal, purple, olive among them).
Next time I’ll show pictures of me wearing the finished jacket.
