The opportunities to wear my summer wardrobe are few and far between at the moment. I am spending my days in ‘painting gear’.
The kitchen will get finished soon!
We did spend the weekend at Cabourne Folk and Blues festival, where I opted for walking trousers, fleecy and warm waterproof! I admired the brave people in festival wear. I like the idea of a large colourful freeform crochet festival shawl, for chilly evenings in tents!
Anyway, today we need to talk about my blue linen jacket. Purchased last year, in the charity shop for £5, I liked the slate blue colour. It will work really well with my navy & white striped trousers, as an alternative to my pink jacket. It is far too big and looking at the construction, it has no side seams.
I have removed the pockets and decided to remove the sleeves and make side seams. Then I will use a jacket pattern to reshape the jacket and the top of the sleeves. I’ll probably use this Burda Pattern as a guide.
I’ll pin it back together and decide what to do with the hem. It’s fairly short, so I might get away with just shaping the side seams.
What do you think, so far?
