Sewn with Love

In 2021 I decided to make a birthday present for my son using 2 vintage silk kimono jackets.

I asked him to select the colours he liked then I proceeded to make a reversible bomber jacket for him . I had his measurements and was able to do a fitting when he came up from Melbourne in March that year so it was ready for his July birthday when he was in lockdown.

He preferred the inside colour

I ordered the reversible open ended zip online and ordered a few extra for next time.The kimono jackets were purchased from Edo Arts a Sydney Japanese furniture and textiles store .

This was an enjoyable make and my son really likes it.

Happy Sewing
