Cropped Clare Jacket Hack

Hello all! Today’s Minerva Make is quite an interesting one, if I do say so myself. When I saw this fur backed suede fabric online I thought it would make a perfect cropped jacket. It would be super cosy and I wouldn’t even need to line it, because the fur is there already! Easy peasy. As with all projects, it ended up being a little more complicated than I first thought, but I worked on this project in short bursts of time over a couple of days which give me time to think the next step through. I started with HeatherLou of Closet Case Patterns’ Clare Coat as this jacket was inspired by her version with an exposed zip. You can read all about the making process at the Minerva Crafts blog here.

Thanks for reading, to Minerva Crafts providing all the supplies used for this make and to MK for taking photos!
