Do you like plaid? I'm usually all for monochromatic coats but I found this great material that I just couldn't resist (especially at the bargain price of 3$) so I bought it, combined it with some red material I had for some time and the result, well...I kinda love it
I used a cardigan- that has seen better days, and I was no longer wearing it but I love the silhouette- as a pattern- usually I use my old clothes as patterns. This is the front of the jacket
and the back
I made a second jacket from the red material, which was going to be the lining. after the two coats were done I put the two jackets over each other, wrong sides facing, left an opening at the neckline and turned it inside out after having sewn them together.
again, wrong sides facing, the white lace that was going to show was sewn in between the two layers
and for the closure of the jacket I made a brooch from the same materials, using a safety pin to pin it in place.
the back of the brooch
So long story short...this is my jacket.
Do you like it?
