I purchased this pattern a few months ago and was keeping my eye out for a good white linen, as the pattern picture displayed. I was having a stressful week at work and ran to the fabric store on my lunch for some retail therapy when I saw this bold print. I cut it that week, sewed over the weekend and then did all the hand sewing at a friend’s sewing night. The pattern calls for a single hook and eye closure, but I purchased a wicker-weave brown button to do a button and elastic loop closure. All in all, I really love the jacket and how it turned out.
