Great Yarmouth, ...






this material came from my neighbour, who had a bit of a clear out. It is some old curtain fabric, which I wasn’t quite sure about, but now I’ve made this jacket I quite like it ! Perhaps even enough to make a matching skirt !

      The jacket was very easy to make, I am sure you could manage it (without breaking too many needles ) Love your dress !!

      Thank you Mary !
      My neighbour’s daughter kept staring at me yesterday, and eventually she said: Your jacket reminds me of some curtains we used to have, except it looks much better !
      Now that’s quite good, isn’t it??
