I found this fabric in my favourite store, Yuzawaya, and really like the colour and texture. Apparently the 2 meters fabric is enough to make a little suit for my son. The jacket has sailor collar, two front pockets and coconut shell buttons. The pants have wide legs with turned-up hems, invisible front pockets and big back pockets. This is a casual jacket so I don’t put any lining (another reason for my laziness). My son also wants to have labels on his home-made clothes, so I sew a little piece of embroidered ribbon in place. The striped shirt he’s wearing in the pictures is a refashioned from my old T-shirt.
As usual, my son is very happy with his new outfit. It’s always fun making stuffs for him.
Some kind of linen? I have no idea.
