Favourite jacket

Added Jul 18, 2008

Durban, South Af...






I made this jacket last year out of upholstery fabric – it was quite funny because I went to a friend’s guest house a few weeks after completing it and the couches were covered in the same fabric – blue version! Today we had a work function – Christmas in July lunch, it was great and we each wore something red to fit into the theme so I wore my favourite jacket :-)
I see that Burda has a very similar jacket to the pattern I used – Eva

Material Notes

Upholstery fabric
Pongee lining
Red buttons

    Love using upholstery and drapery fabrics for clothes. Especially love them for costumes too – they read so much better from stage. Who says you match the sofa? It matched you!

    Love the bold print on the fabric. It fits you very nicely.
