Cap sleeve wool jacket

Most of the reconstuction works that you could see from the web were to modify a bigger garmet to a smaller fitting one, but mine is the other way round, I reconstruction mine to bigger size from a small one. This time, it's my old wool sweater that needs modifications. I slash off both of the sleeves and cut the front piece into half. Installed both the front opening with 3" bands for extention. I draft my own cap sleeve pattern and it came out not bad though and all these modification were done on plain dark brown cotton fabric. It's a buttonless jacket, I'll wear it with a small brooch and a camisole underneath.
