Description

Variation A of Burda 7135 – a tailored jacket made from cotton African wax print.
Notched lapel collar, welt pockets.
Very flattering cut.

My first blazer – quite a challenging project. Collar & lapels look quite sloppy even after unpicking all of the pieces and re-sewing them a second time.
Hopefully my next jacket will benefit from my trials and tribulations with this one (such as melting the lining while ironing the cuff)!

Material Notes

    Gorgeous jacket and sure you can’t see the iron mark on the lining. We have all done this, i burnt a dress while pressing the seams, i just cut out a section either side and added a contrast fabric lol. I love your fabric and you did a cracking job on this x
