My Momma’s Jacket


Well I loved my Momma’s light weight linen jacket.   I loved it so much I wore it out.  I wore it with stains, holes, and ripped seams that I would repair until it was not possible to wear any more.  

She told me she had purchased it from an Amish catalog store. https://www.lehmans.com/product/lehmans-catalog-international?shopping&gclid=CjwKCAjwq_D7BRADEiwAVMDdHpDm_EBRupmJssD9G_oPCNq4O4B60WVp1SlMS5DIu_L-q4yx79fgqhoCzAYQAvD_BwE#

So I decided to take it apart and make a pattern.  

This was so easily done. I was very pleased with how well every peace fit perfectly together. The fabric I choice was heavy weight linen from https://fabrics-store.com/fabrics/linen-fabric-4C22-natural-heavy. I also made a dress to match my jacket but, I will wear it with every thing. Now, that I have the pattern and it fits me wonderfully I think I will make myself a bathrobe too. That is for another post. Here are pictures of the replacement. So happy, Love you so much Mom, thank you for everything. I loved wrapping myself up in your little jacket since you have been gone.
Love this, will be wearing it often.

Thank you for stopping by, Christie
