Here it is – the jacket I wanted for song long and didn’t have enough courage to finally say to myself – hells yeah, I’m making it! The pattern is model 113 from Burda 12/2010.
The first attempt pretty much failed as it turned out that the size is wrong… ohh. While trying it on I kept thinking until the very last moment that it’s just the shoulder pads making it look bigger…
Instructions are easy even for such a hack in sewing that I am. The difficult part is to actually make it fit for you.
So either way it’s not perfect but I’m only learning.
Attempt 2 – Grey wool
Attempt 1 – black boiled wool
Pattern of the Week
