A little jacket made from fabric found in the left-overs bin at the college I used to teach at, lining for Hong Kong binding left over from another project, and buttons from a treasure find at a local charity shop.
The jacket is unlined and has no shoulder pads, the only structure is a light fusible interfacing on the collar and facing. It is great for summer use, as daughter no 1 has to wear “business dress” for 6th Form, but hates being hot..
As it is unlined, I was determined not to have raggy seams showing, so bound each and every edge with a pale beige lining cut on the bias. I love Hong Kong finish in unlined jackets and skirts. I have been know to do it on trousers too.. shhhhhhhh
Pattern used is good old Burda 9603 – a children’s pattern, minus the patchy pockets because I really don’t like them.
Fabric is a wool/silk blend.
