I just decided it would make more sense to post this jacket separately, even though really it goes with the scarf dress I made. This jacket is Burda 8133 with a couple of adjustments (unlined, snap at the front instead of a bow, doily on the back to cover a serger accident). I’m not convinced that it looks as good on me as it did on the pattern envelope, but it was still a fun project. :)
And I just realized that, strangely enough, this is the first picture of myself that I’ve posted to BurdaStyle. Besides my rather oblique profile picture. Weird!
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
