Menagerie Coat

Susie and Black Jacket

This was a real challenge! This coat is an adaptation of an 18th century sailor’s jacket. The designs come from Susie’s children’s drawings. It is hooked with recycled clothing and raw sheep’s wool on linen. The inside silk lining is covered with tags from the recycled wool garments used to hook the jacket. The lining is also embroidered with inspirational sayings.
