Description

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!

Material Notes

Shell: Silk
Lining: Poly Silk
Buttons: Self made – I think they’re what I’m most proud of!

    Ohhh I have this pattern and have been wanting to make it. This just solidifies it for me. Love Love Love the shaping. Not looking forward to working with silk though! Great Job.

    Ooh, very pretty. I absolutely adore the fabric you chose. I’d love to make this for myself, perhaps a bit longer, for a pirate-y look. Great project!
