Golden times! Sewing tutorial for a jacket
Gold is a completely trendy colour, and if it is sufficiently discreetly used, non-gold lovers can also warm to it.
This linen jacket with a touch of gold luster is sporty chic. The jacket comes without any lining, provided that you trim all seams with an overlock machine.
· 1.5 – 1.7 m cotton or linen material, 145 cm wide
· Detachable zipper, 40 cm long
· Sewing machine
Because the jacket is worked on without lining, trim all seams before stitching with your overlock.
