Hand made jackets from old embroidery, quilt bits and tapestry


I love old embroidery from dresser scarves to tea towels and have been collecting them at flea markets and antique shows. Now I have started to incorporate them in my new line of hand made jackets so they can be worn and enjoyed. I use pieces of printed linen as I feel it is so British.

This vintage quilt is now the back of a great jacket with cowboy sleeves.

The detail work on the back of this crop jacket is a combination of intricate stitches.

One of my favorites is the yoyo quilt, made into a jacket. Yoyo quilt front and back. Generous size.
