London, United K...
So, I was the only person in my office the other day wearing a suit made of old curtains.
A while ago, I made new living room curtains as the old ones were shabby and stained in places. However, they still contained a whole load of perfectly decent fabric that I decided had a different destiny!
I made the jacket from Burda 7303 and the skirt from New Look 6917.
Continuing the upholstery theme, I used a trim for the jacket from the upholstery section – it was cheaper and nicer than anything else I came across.
A heavy, textured, probably cotton fabric
