I had this label from when I used to sew a lot.
An added beaded detail.

My mom is gone now, but when I was going through her things, I found a pair of beautiful old cotton curtains. They didn't fit any of my windows, so I thought of making something out of them. The two panels were enough to make a simple jacket with patch pockets. I was so happy to have thought of a way to use Mother's old curtains.

Happy day.
