I used the Hikaro #8020 pattern for the jacket.., changed it here and there… Mostly the length… The original one is 15cms longer, and that just wouldn’t have looked good on me… I’m very short!! Here’s a tip: If you don’t have long legs, don’t wear a long jacket!!! I found the idea for the skirt in a Burda magazine, but can’t remember which one, Sorry! I decorated the whole outfit with Yellow stitches, so I could wear my new yellow shoes with it ;)
Pleated wool, dark blue denim and 8 buttons ( I used snap fasteners/press studs )
My husband for his patience when he has to be without me, while I sew all night long!
