Description

I’m interested in early 60’s fashion style now, so I have made this suit out of my grandmother’s suit that she no longer wear, except cuffs made out of my old coat. ( A year ago last December, I made “New Year’s Jacket” out of the same old coat, too.)
Because this is upcycled clothing, there are traces of buttonholes aroud the second button(hole).
The pattern is self drafted.

Material Notes

Shell: Wool
Cuffs: Cashmere
Lining:Bemberg rayon

Difficulty

Intermediate
