Last year we had the best winter ever, cooler and longer than past years. I made a linen jacket for our vacation house project site visit in Kaoyai. The pattern was from the Japanese sewing book “Simple Modern Sewing” by Shufu To Seikatsu Sha which I have had for a while and have tried couple of its patterns. The book is an English version. The pattern is simple and easy to follow the ruffle-neck give interesting and charming look to this jacket. I found it quite difficult to position it on my body especially around the my neck might depend on how much ruffle you had pulled and how thick your fabric is.
