Description

When I saw this pattern on Burdastyle I bought it straight away – It’s amazing!! As it’s spring right now I thought of florals? But, I didn’t want it to be too feminine so I added Leather bias binding and some fake leather on the sleeve. I love the shape of this jacket!!! But, I’m worried that I managed to make the awesome shape look perhaps a little tacky? The floral pattern is a little bright! The print also had very obvious repeat that was hard to avoid.
I am sooo going to make another one, cos this pattern ROCKS!

    Not tacky at all… Quite the opposite, in fact. It’s a fantastic interpretation of an awesome jacket! Great job :)

    I love your version and I’m so glad to see it here because just like you this pattern is the main reason I bought the issue and I wanted to use a print fabric, but I wasn’t sure how the collar will look – I see that it totally works. Great job, it looks fantastic.

    Lovely job – florals as such a big feature now and they soften the otherwise masculine structure of the jacket.

    Very beautiful outfit and original idea to use the fabric with floral print for such a jacket.
