After a bit of a delay in getting any sewing done, I have finally got round to upcycling this linen jacket, it was far too big for me, but I loved the colour and the fabric.
I removed the pockets, and sleeves, creating side seams. I then recut the shoulders and side seams using a jacket pattern in my size. I sewed it all back together, then experimented with how I wanted the hem. Being petite I like a short but shapely jacket. I decided a pointed front would suit the single button style and curved it up slightly at the back.
I chopped the sleeves off and rehemmed to 3/4 length. Now I’m hoping for some nice warm weather so I can wear it!
£5 well spent?
