Big button jacket

My first try on making a jacket. I’m pretty happy with the result. It was really difficult to make, especially the collar and the lining took lots of patience… It’s not 100% perfect, but it’ll do for me :)





pattern #104 from Burda magazine March 2008

    I just discovered Burdastyle and this jacket is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I would love a pattern… as it is I guess I’ll try to modify another pattern to look like this—it’s gorgeous!

    it’s so cool how the same pattern can create such different jackets. yours is very beautiful! i think the pattern might just not be very good since we both had such trouble…

    I LOVE the March issue of Burda Magazine! It’s filled with really beautiful things for spring. The next items on my list are the dress #115 and the top #109.

    Love the topstitching. What a great jacket for spring. Makes me think twice about BWOF’s March issue.

    what a great jacket. I would not have been so inspired by the picture in the magazine but your version is great.

    That is so beautiful, some day I will have the extra cash to subscribe to Burda. I agree it looks better than the one in the magazine, I like the thought that you put into the contrast stitching, great job!

    I still have to wear it going outside, but I’m sure it’s not warm enough to really wear it for winter walks. It will be ideal for spring/summer, or for going out, when you’re not really outside that much.

    It looks perfect. I am always worried I will be cold in this shorter sleeves jacket. Is it that way?

    What a great jacket! I was also thinking of making this jacket. I like your combination of grey fabric and the red lining. Suits you perfectly!
