Ellen Jacket - repurposed vintage French linen-size regular-(style 03)

This one-of-a-kind oversized jacket has a wonderful cut and an interesting silhouette.  The linen fabric is a white, medium weight, crisp, vintage or antique French linen bed sheet purchased in the markets of Provence. 

The two front pockets feature the original hand stitching that ran across the top of the bed sheet.  The hem is the original hand stitched bottom hem of the bed sheet.  I have put the “wrong side” of the original hem on the outside of jacket to feature it.

The sleeves are bracelet length (see measurements).

The fabric has been pre-washed and will not shrink if washed on cold and hung to dry.

The generous boxy silhouette will fit a range of sizes.  Please review the measurements provided (see last two photos for this jacket) to ensure that this would be the right size for you.

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