Hot Pink Scallopes

Added Aug 4, 2009

Media, Pennsylva...






Princess line jacket with decorative scalloped edges, 3/4 sleeves with pin tucks, self drafted nehru collar.
The original Burda pattern has no collar but after making the muslin I felt the jacket needed one.

The tricky parts of this jacket are the scallops and getting the pintucks on the sleeves even. My broadcloth seemed a tad too thick to get nice scallops even though I trimmed the seam allowances very close. They wanted to be pointy instead of curved. Then top stitching them is a bear. In the end though all the ripping seams worth the final result. Especially happy with the plastic glitter buttons to match.

Material Notes

Stretch Cotton Broadcloth from,





Pattern from Burda World of Fashion mag, issue 6/2008. Design #102.
