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.
Lilac days jacket has a deeper toned printed linen front with a pot holder pocket.
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.
