i used the same fabric as the plastic-covered bag, plus an upholstery Laura Ashley fabric (for collar, shoulder & cuff parts) and polyester chiffon (for the detail on the collar).
i call this a nursery-rhyme jacket, because of the pattern that reminds me of the pictures in nursery rhyme books for kids…i especially love the small duck <3
i actually got the pattern for the jacket from a Burda magazine, and managed to do halfway of the jacket till just before i got sick…once i was well enough again, i realized somebody in the house accidentally threw away the copy of the instructions page, so i finished sewing it without any instructions, so yay me!
due to the lost instructions though, i can no longer give a proper credit for the pattern..sorry :(
around 1,2m of heavy-weight cotton fabric (usually used for curtains),
40cm of upholstery cotton fabric,
5cm of polyester chiffon
4 snap buttons
