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