I used Burdas pattern #104 of this years november issue. I recycled a trench I sewed earlier this year but the fabric was horrible to work with: bulgy and frayed just by looking at it. I quilted all pattern pieces to nettel cloth to eliminate those problems and it worked out pretty well. I’m very pleased with the result. I did not only use the outer fabric but also part of the lining as a base for the lace trimming and for the front facings. I lined the jacket with nougat brown poly lining and used two hooks and eyes as closure instead of a long zipper as suggested by the pattern.
I blogged about it here:
cotton blend, cotton, polyester lining, lace trimming
