Chore Jacket--size medium (style 02)

This one-of-a-kind jacket is based on the traditional French worker's jacket known as "bleu de travail".  The fabric is repurposed from linen and cotton tea towels purchased in the markets of Provence.

The jacket features white on cream stripes from the tea towel and  6 holes  that are reinforced with hand-stitching in white.  It is likely that the holes are for hanging the tea towels from nails.  The wearer's front right features a horizontal join that I created in order to make best use of fabric and  be a design feature.  The wearers back left also features a vertical hand sewn seam.

This jacket is a ratatouille designs size medium.  It typically would fit someone who is a size small to medium.  Please review the measurements provided (see last two photos for this jacket) to ensure that this would be the right size for you.  The measurements provided are for the actual jacket - remember to leave a bit of room for you to move in the jacket.

Fabrics that are not new linen are listed as vintage or antique as it is difficult to date fabrics and, when sourcing fabric, my focus is on its tactile nature and its reflection of a history of use and/or workmanship.

When I identify fabric content as linen or hemp or a blend I am doing this based on considerable experience and not scientific tests.
