Since I lost my old favourite jacket last year, I’ve never found time nor motivation to get a new one. Until now :D
I used the LOVELY Hikaru pattern, a great satin lining with flowers printed all over and vintage buttons for decoration (I left the front plain, mainly because I only had 10 buttons ;)).
It took me two and a half days to make it and I love it ><.
It’s ever-changing, this jacket! A few months back, I embellished the front with vintage metal buttons from all over the world (even from the french and british military :D), see last picture for the update!
