I had envisioned this jacket for to many years and finally took on the challenge to make it…
The jacket was given to me from my Mom for it was to big for her...even after taking off the cuffs!
I in turn bought some cororoy and cotton woven material and went to work.
First I measured and cut out cuffs and a collar. After cutting bias stripes from the striped cotton they were sewn to the top pieces of each cuff and collar.
ALOT of hand sewing took place after the initial add on. Buttons were placed and I was finished...now for the fitting!
WELL...it fits ok but the sleeves are to long...from top of shoulder to end of cuff...is 26 inches...

SEW...I am in the studio but not working with paper as yet. I have another project in the makings...time will tell when I post it, but it will be soon...KEEP IN TOUCH!
