Description

The pattern is quite old – from Burda magazine – 9/2007, jacket No 106. I’m in love with the sixties style so I wasn’t able to resist. I cut out the jacket somewhere in the 2009, but pick up it again to finish only in the last year. I made the bodice of the jacket longer and the double breasted front – broader. Attached some buttons on sleeves. The matching of dogtooth definitely took some time :), but I’m some kind of perfectionist so I had to be patient. The decorative stitch on the collar and pocket flaps is made by hand as my sewing machine can’t achieve so wide stitches.

Material Notes

Wool, viscose for lining, 4 big buttons, 4 smaller – for sleeves, interlining

    I made the same jacket a few years ago, but yours turned out so much better and more form-fitting. i’m a little jealous ;)

    Oooh yes, I want one. What a superb piece of work! And I don’t think anybody’s machine could beat that topstitching!

    Wow, you put in a lot of hard work! But I think your persistance paid off: it’s very stylish.
