BWOF/Oilily jacket

Added May 18, 2008

by smvphotography

Phoenicia, New Y...






this jacket was really hard, much harder than the previous one i hade made. major problems with getting the collar in without wrinkles (it took me three tries) and then some problems with the self facing and some wrinkling…i think i hid most of it pretty well, though. i love the jacket!

Material Notes

Oilily fabric from Ebay, lining and buttons from Mood





my lovely Bernina machine and teacher Bunny

    Beautiful! I made this jacket myself and also had trouble with the collar. I didnt get it right in the end, but it was my first try on a jacket. And boy, what a hard first lesson… :) I really love the Oilily fabric, very vibrant!

    Oops, somehow it didn’t list the pattern. It is from BWOF March 2008 pattern # 104. Thank you for all your praise, I am so flattered!

    Your jacket is so cute! I think it was worth the hard work and it suits you very well.

    I am so jealous. I often have to try things several times but they do not look as good as yours. The fabric is a winner. The sleeves are awesome.
