Recycled Garment Challenge

This jacket and top was made out of old clothing mostly 100% linen. This includes 2 linen skirts, 2 men's linen blend shirts, 1 metallic fabric blend jacket, 1 pair of linen pants. The buttons are also those that were on these garments.

The embellishing is still in progress. This is a Diane Ericson (Revisions) pattern called Fault Lines. It is a jacket and a sleeveless top (shown underneath the jacket).

Hi Helen,
I love what you're doing! A Zama classmate told me about your blog and so here I am visiting. I was class of 74 and a friend of your sister Yvonne. maden name Judy Cannon. I've taken up painting lately - please check out my blog when you get the time and would love to share ideas. I've added your link to my list of links.
Have a lovely day,
