The first one is a chef jacket I made up for my daughter using the lydia pattern (with the collar from the hikaru pattern). I altered the front neck line to be the same height as the back neckline. I extended the front (it is in two pieces, identical) so they overlapped. I have to add buttons but I am going for snaplock buttons (easier and quicker). I also shortened the sleeves on this so they wouldn’t get in the way for cooking.
The second is the lydia with slightly shortened sleeves with a neckband made from a long length of leftover fabric. I had excess so I crossed it over and left loose ends.
chef jacket – purple linen, black snap lock buttons
Jumper – plaid super soft (and fluffy) polar fleece
