Zero-Waste Jacket from Elbe

Elbe Zero Waste Jacket

I made this linen duster-ish jacket using Elbe Textile‘s free tutorial for making a zero-waste jacket.

I love the idea of zero-waste sewing since it saves me from hoarding linen scraps for years and I suppose it’s also good for the environment.

Sizing Details: I had a bit less linen than the pattern called for and I was also wider & had larger arms than the model. Soo, I did lots of little calculations on scraps of paper to increase the width of the body pieces and also to increase the size of the arms.
