This outfit post is a bit different than the usual. The jacket I am wearing was fully handmade by my mother. It was inspired by patchwork and Japanese stitching called sashiko.

I’ve tried myself this stitching technique on an old jacket that I wanted to make a look a little special. I’ll be showing you that in a future article, as soon as I actually finish it.

My mother will be showcasing her work in a shop in La Chaux-de-fonds. All the info is below if you’re interested in seeing some of it. I’ll admit it’s not the typical clothes I would wear but the object in itself is beautiful.
