Description

It’s Autumn in the southern hemisphere which calls for a new jacket to ward off the morning chill.

Thanks to mum for the 1973 Simplicity pattern! A strange cut for a jacket so thought I’d try it. The pattern wasn’t lined so I added that and did it with leftover silk. The wool herringbone is an off-cut found in an op-shop.
