MarthaMyers (Martha Myers) Category: linen

This jacket was constructed from 5 linen garments using the Sewing Workshop Ikina Jacket pattern. Three of the garments were my mother's: a big shirt, a tank, and a pair pants. The other two were garments I had made but did not like - a skirt and a vest. As it happened both outfits had virtually the same royal blue linen, plus my mother's big shirt and pants were turquoise linen. I harvested all the linen I could. Because none of the pieces from these garments was large enough for any of the Ikina Jacket pattern pieces, I pieced them together using contrasting piping. The jacket body and sleeves used the royal blue for piping to contrast with the turquoise base fabric; the collar used turquoise piping to contrast with the royal blue base fabric. I had to work hard to keep everything on grain! The remaining fragments of linen were used to make an envelope purse using a quilting technique, prairie points. I used the placket from the big shirt to make a closure for the purse.

Pattern: Sewing Workshop Ikina Jacket.

Category: Linen.
