I can say I’m proud of this one. I had a very small piece of fabric I bought a few years ago. I did’nt really liked it so I decided it would be great to experiment some with it.
I used the fabric diagonal for the front and horizontal for the back. I think it was a piece of only 60 cm so I’m glad I managed to get the checks matched. Last week I found the right clips. Saturday I wore it for the first time and I received several compliment. They did’nt knew I made it myself, so that was great.

Material Notes

    It looks great, I really like the assymmetri of it, it makes it unique.
