Linen Jacket & Skirt

Added Sep 21, 2016

Nedre Vats, Norway






These are my favorite patterns from “My Image” 2011. I like garments with top-stitching and white on black is a great choice! The fabric is a combination of linen and cotton, and it’s very comfy to wear. The buttons for the jacket is just for decoration, but a great detail since they are square with half white and black :)
I have made a Grey Jacket with Red top-stitching and a Skirt of the same pattern before.

    You make such complex things as if just play with the fabric and patterns:-) Very neat and impressive job and great suit created for you only:-)) I like top stitching , too, so can’t but admire the style!

    Way a beautiful set. The topstitching looks very well and the light color works wonderful with the dark fabric. And as always the fit is perfect.

    Fabulous two pieces Ellen. I love your top stitching. The jacket is especially gorgeous and would look just as great over a dress. I loved your earlier version as well xx
