hi i bought this pattern along with a couple of other’s of ebay. i had the dog tooth fabric a while and decided to use it along with a splaah of yellow for a contrast. i also found some lovely buttons to go along with it. i made the little jacket with my trusty quick and easy jacket pattern. i love wearing matchy matchy things lol. it probably was black white and yellow overkill but i loved it lol

Material Notes

heavy dog tooth jersey
yellow cotton jersey and black jersey lining
2 very cute buttons
