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.

This StyleArc Susan Top was an easy sew, and I think I got the pattern for free as a StyleArc monthly giveaway.

This Susan is made out of merino fabric for layering in the winter. I haven’t hemmed the bottom or fixed the shoddy neckline I put in either.

Size Details: I sewed a size 22 and am wearing it with a 47″ bust and 54″ hip
