Plaza Jacket



A jacket using the Plaza Jacket pattern from Sewing Workshop. I used the Large rather than the Extra Large size. With the left-over fabric I made a bias tube and used it to make a bias sleeveless top. The fabric is a very slubby, irregular silk noil that I bought in Borovicks a couple of years ago. It is loosely woven and drapes beautifully.

I have put off posting this as I intended to use the pants from this pattern to make some linen trousers, but it just doesn't seem to have happened so here is the jacket and top. I have plenty of linen trousers in a natural colour anyway!
