These 4 pieces (1 tailored jacket, 1 blouse, 2 skirts) has been made for a good friend. additionally to the jacket, i showed allready in another project i made her a cremecolored blouse following the pattern of burdastyle issue 4 2011 pattern nr 105 and, 2 skirts with a vintage burda pattern from the early 80’s german burda pattern 7215. the skirts have been made one in the same fabric than the jacket and one in a light brown very heavy cotton (almoust like a denim). both skirts are fully lined in dark violet silk and have a little slit at the back.
my new mashine helped me doing a ton-in-ton monogramm on one of the cuffs and also the buttonholes are so much nicer now with my new Janome!
