70´s retro jacket

I have followed “Sew Retro” for ages and I am pleased to post one of my creations for the very first time on this blog :-)

I have made this jacket for my daughter. The pattern is from 1969 and I love it!! The orange fabric with flowers is an original bed sheet from the 70´s, and I think that it works out wonderfully with the purple fabric. In between the 2 cotton layers is one layer of thinsulate, so she can keep warm.

You are very welcome to visit my blog and see what else I am making .

Kind regards
