I wanted to make myself something new for those lovely evenings I can spend at home reading a good book and just relaxing. I ended up using the pattern of Margaux Evening Dress from Sewing Vintage Modern to transform it into a home jacket. This was the first time I drafted pattern for sleeves and struggled quite a bit with it. However, it ended up just like I had imagined. I used self-made bias tape for finnishing and chose 100 % cotton fleece as the fabric and am very happy with it.
