Description

This project a have started 6 month ago. Not because I was lazy but because the time I had to spend on the jacket. i’m very proud what I have done. Next time, I would spend as much time as I did the jacket.

Material Notes

I used a jacket pattern from Burda 03/2011. For the Jacket I used a jacket suiting. And as the lining of the jacket a used 100% silk.

    It is gorgeous and the sewing shows how much time you put into it. What a great pattern too! and the lining is stunning! I’m not sure what fabric it is, but if you would invest a little time into pressing, it would be better…

    Gorgeous! I’ve been meaning to make myself a tailored jacket, I’m just fearful of the commitment. You have showed that time and effort yield great results.
