first ever jacket. I’m really pleased with the result even if I really struggled! I decided to recycle an old jacket’s lining and it took me forever to figure out how not to see any stitches inside… a how to would be very useful, please somebody :)
I also shortened it (5cm) and added a button on the collar and made a mini hair scrunchie with some leftover lining fabric. I’ll probably go scrunchie-crazy and make loads for variations (there is also a how to to make lovely flowers, maybe if I tie them with a ribbon around the button…)
