 Well, just the jacket was made from a hand-me-down curtain/drapes, lined with hand-me-down olive moleskin, using McCall's 5936. The skirt was made previously from a suedecloth using Simplicity 2758.

 I covered the back piece with lace, alternating cream lace and sage lace hem tape, because...

There was just enough fabric in the curtain when I took out the hem (Note the wear/crease where the curtain was folded). It was destined to be this jacket! ;-)

I love the lace details on the back and captain planet would be proud that you recycled the curtains  Smiley

Super cute jacket! I really like the pin/brooch/whatever on the breast and the detailing on the back.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
