A jacket, circa 1968, that belonged to my customer’s father. He was ready to get it out of the closet, but his wife was not so sure. It was tattered in spots, but was a generous size. I thought it would be fun to incorporate the leather sleeves. I barely had enough fabric! I cut the front and back to 18″ square and the leather to 3.5″ x 18″. I didn’t have enough leather to go longer, so I incorporated squares into the corners. On the front I used extra wool from the jacket. On the back, pieces of the rib trim.
And just for fun…..
