I’ve been rather preoccupied with tweeds and jackets lately. Even though I knew winter is over… These are my first warmer weather creations this year. The jacket is in black jeans. I originally made the pattern for recycled leather, so it’s got lots of small pieces. It has raglan sleeves, cut in four pieces and is unlined but finished with flat felled seams. The skirt is simply a piece fabric gathered onto a high shaped waist piece. The fabric is an African wax print, which I’ve had an eye on for a long time before buying it.
jeans, cotton in African wax print (this print design is called ‘hitrack’ or at least, that’s printed in the border)
