Description

This is the competition which Indygo Junction has organised with sponsors and this is my interpretation of this vintage bed Jacket. I am a millinery designer, so I have now decided to try and use a rather unusual fabric for this project and tried my hand with JUTE/HESSIAN. This fabric is lined especially since it can be a little itchy

Material Notes

Hessian, lining, self made button, interfacing (light)

Difficulty

Intermediate
