Quick as it only took me 2 hours to get this far.
I didn’t want to spend money my shopping budget dried out quicker than I hoped so I called in to the charity store to get some budget friendly fabric…next thing I know I bought about a meter or so beautiful 80% wool material. I had struggled with the pattern as it requires over 1.50 m of fabric but I took out from the collar all the way down and managed to secure a lovely blazer for me :)
The zippers cost me €4.80+€2 for the fabric…tadaaaa!
I used 4 zips, two at the waist and two on the sleeves.
Ps.: I still have some fraying to do…
I love this pattern, although it meant to be for shearling jackets I keep on designing alternatives instead :)
