I found this pattern at a junk shop a while ago and I liked the shape and the over puffy sleeves (do puffy sleeves remind anyone else of Anne of Green Gables??)
I changed it up a bit in by taking the lapel opening all the way to the bottom of the jacket and using a button and loop system.
The buttons are vintage ones I got off my step-mother and the fabric is some I bought last year or even the year before - it has a slightly pearlised surface and comes from somewhere in Africa from recollection.
I also made the sleeves a lot slimmer to try and reduce the amount of volume going on.
This is my second clothing make for May.
