I used Butterick B4929 to create this oriental style Jacket for my sister’s birthday. The silk was an absolute pain to work with, I burnt it with an iron once, and had to recut (didn’t have enough it left) and it unravelled before I even got a chance to do anything with it!
I could point out all things that went wrong with it, but I won’t becuase I learnt so many techniques from doing it (it was my first attempt at a. a jacket, b. silk, c. lining) and because it might make me have another one of those sewing tantrums I’m now famed for.
She really liked it which is the most important thing!
Lining: Poly Silk
Buttons: Self made – I think they’re what I’m most proud of!
