The One-Minute Jacket

Yes, this is a one-minute jacket. It's a thrift-store tee shirt (with some spandex in it) cut up the middle and pinned back together. 

Pin it at the waist if you like, or under the bust to emphasize the ribcage, or leave it open.

Anna, on an unrelated (yet still sewing related) topic:
have you happened upon this article about the oldest known woven garment?
It's a linen chemise
It's fascinating! Best of all, the London museum housing it has provided a pattern to make your own.
It has me intrigued -

The little star is perfect there! It's hard to tell - did you leave the neckline ribbing on? It looks tucked in. It looks very well on you!


Wendy said...

Brilliant idea! I'm going to try that.

L. said...

It looks lovely! But I'm so confused, what way is it cut?

Anna said...

Lisa, yes, I just tucked the ribbing under. It stays in place nicely.

L, I just cut it up the middle--like going from a pullover to a cardigan.
