Description

My mother bought this jacket in the 80s and both me and her could’t part with that lovely beading at the front, even though the style went away long ago. So I kept it, and this month decided to give it the much needed overhaul :)

Alterations:
Narrowed the arms
Shortened it
Added pockets
Back pleat
Back beading
Sewed double breast to torso

The image on the mannequin shows how it was :)
