Sergeant Jacket


It was a lot of fun sewing this jacket :)
Linen is a great fabric to work with.
Instead of sewing velour ties in front I made paspels in black linen and decorated them with buttons.
To make it even more special I have used red and gold ties as decoration on the collar and the sleeves. 
I have used cotton fabric as lining for the body and black ordinary lining for the sleeves.

Batik Blouse with Embroidery


I fell in love with this lovely batik cotton!
I had to find a nice pattern so I could use the embroidery at the edge.
It was a lot of work with rubber band both at the waist, 
neck and sleeve hem, but I'm happy with the result :)
