Burda 8168 jacket made form fleece, the edges are stitched with a green perle 8 thread and it is pinned at the collar with a fabric button.
I may add a few snaps to the underside to help keep it closed since it likes to gape at the bottom a little, especially when i’m lifting small children.

Material Notes

Fleece, perle 8 thread

    Nathan, it is incredibly easy to make, no need for finishing the edges since the fleece does not unravel. Only a few pieces to sew together.

    the collar frames the wearer’s face very beautifully.

    No this isn’t the muslin. I made this jacket a month or so ago. It’s winter here but not always cold enough for a coat so this fleece jacket is perfect for those chilly days.

    It’s lovely and simple. The shape speaks for its self. Was this the muslin you were working on?
