The moment I saw this jacket I wanted one! I did it together with my mom, because she has a lot of experience with sewing and this was my first attempt in sewing and I was afraid I’ll ruin it :D The sleeves could’ve been a little bit longer (next time I’ll lenghten the pattern) and the arm wholes are a little bit too big I think, because we cut out size 40 (which should’ve been the right size after measuring), but had to take away a lot of fabric.
But I’m totally confident with it and have to thank my mom a lot, alone it would have been a lot more difficult.
I love this jacket and my matching Alexis skirt :)
My Mom!!! For the fabric and her help.
