Once upon a time there lived a pair of vintage 60’s curtains… Well, to cut a long story short, I have finally finished making my new jacket! I’m really pleased with the result. I love how the covered buttons turned out, and the swing sleeves are really fun.

Material Notes

A pair of vintage curtains bought from a charity shop for £4. Self covered buttons.





Awesome pattern

    Thanks for your comments! The pattern I used was Simplicity 4109, one of the Built by Wendy patterns, which are so great! I really recommend this pattern.

    Cute! I love the color and the cut. The buttons look great, too. What pattern did you use?
