So this is the jacket that goes with “the other 1935 linen dress” I posted last week. It’s made out of the same linen and was quite an easy project. However, I took more artistic freedom in this one, because I loved the shape, but I thought it needed a bit more spice. They make it out of only one color. I also made it a little longer (now it looks just as long as in the illustration…), added the pockets (I can’t do with a jacket without pockets, if the dress doesn’t have any, either) and the button. I’m showing it worn with “modern” clothes, too, because I almost like it better that way. Somehow, it looks a bit like a dentists smock, or a lab coat, I haven’t fully made up my mind how much I like it. Part of me really does, another part thinks the funkiness is not only great… We’ll see how much I end up wearing it, and what the reactions to it are!
