One of our favorite finds to date, we love this sweet and romantic cropped jacket in easy to wear blue dark shade - with white squared pattern designs.
It features a repurposed reversible and detachable collar made from preloved and vintage linen. The colors from the one side is light blue and yellow in front and white with a handmade lace as finishing at the back. The reverse side is white with a faint flowers design. You will button up the collar using the extra button holes on the jacket.
The collar is in an overlapping sailor style with strawberry embroidery along it.
The reworked jacket is preloved and its made from fine cotton fabric with V- neck collar closure, shoulder pads, light puffed sleeves and a beautiful waistband as a hem. The design has a generous fit with 6 buttons closure in front.
When the weather gets chilly, you should be able to stay warm while still looking chic. Its so versatile and its the ideal partner for a jean, short, leggings or a strappy top or blouse underneath when there’s a chill in the air.
Why it’s perfect for you:
One of a kind - The collar exists once & it will be totally unique to you-
“I keep every details from the preloved textiles and transfer them to the up cycled design, such as embroidery details and lace finishing.
Upcycled from a beautiful preloved linen table runner
