This is my first attempt at sewing clothes. And my first attempt at understanding patterns and instructions. I used fabric from my grandmother, who has recently reached the age of 92, and who now can’t sew anymore.
I didn’t have anyone who could help me figuring out what the instructions meant. This made it extra hard for me but also made me extra proud of the result :)
I tried to follow the instructions and only changed the length of the sleeves (shortened them).
firm cotton/linen mix-like fabric
striped lining fabric (not visible on any of the pictures)
2 buttons, + 1 for the inside
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
