Jerkin Dress Linen and Cotton Tartan MULBERRY WALNUT (Sold)
Mulberry Walnut, modelled by small lady, bought by blonde lady. Like the other brown jerkins, this uses skirt or trousers upside down, so the base of the garment becomes the shoulders naturally forming the capped sleeves. Sides are extended with triangular patch pieces of contrast red, grey, black tartan linen/viscose mix. The garment is pulled together by using the tartan for collar, sides, and front button welt, with pleat at the back. Front pocket detail showed applied bunched floral applique feature from original garment. This was a popular style and sold on first showing at a craft fair. (must make another) Both ladies were in black jumper and leggings which was exactly the combo I had envisioned.
