From the left over

Moordrecht, Neth...






This made from the leftover fabric from my winter coat. First I thinked that I want to make a bonnet, but the fabric is still enough to make something more than just a bonnet. So I decided to make a short sleeve jacket pattern by myself. It’s inspired by Grosgain daughter’s red jacket with turtle neck :-). Because it’s left over so some of the lines are not significant, and the lining fabrics too. The hem line this jacket I just let it so, the lining fabric too.

Material Notes

wool (leftover), lining fabric




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Classic, Other

      it’s inspired by member here, Grosgrain. I see the red jacket from her daughter which made from wool. I love the turtle neck and the model. So I decided to make by myself the pattern. Thank you for the comment!! :-)

    oh, hey, a very creative use of the left over. Congratulations on making your own pattern, too! I love layering jackets like this one and plaids! I can see myself wearing it :)
