Comme un Coquelicot

I’ve been wanting to make this skirt from Burda magazine since I saw it, but I wasn’t too sure about the style, I didn’t know what I would pair it with. And then I thought I could make a cute outfit with this bolero! I used a lutterloh pattern as a basis.

I bought this red wool on sale, it’s perfect, except that it wasn’t easy to gather because it was too thick… I had to take in the side seams too.

I made the bridles (?) for the buttons for the first time, it’s very easy and so cute!

The whole outfit makes me think of a winter poppy!

Material Notes

wool, zipper, buttons.

      Hello! Thank you :) you can find them on the right of the page : the bolero pattern is the one I made, it is free (but not professionnal), and the skirt pattern is from Burda Magazine 10/2010, if you don’t have the magazine you can buy it online. Both links are on this page.

    Love the bolero, fantastic colour, you look great, extremely elgant perfect. Can i assume the pattern size is a 38? If I do get the pattern I will have to up the size a little. can’t wait.

      Thanks! Yes the bolero is a small size, I’d say even 36… But i think you can find a technique that explains how to grade a pattern. Good luck!
      (by the way the pattern is available…)

    This is such a sparkling bright color and you look so elegant in red. I am only ever able to wear that true red of your wool. However, given the fact that I am easily two of you through the waistline, your outfit is safe from this predatory granny from Tennessee. Most cordially, nehmah
