Karl Lagerfeld for Burda tweet blazer

I was really excited when I saw the blazer on the cover of the october issue of Burda magazine. Originally I wanted to copy it entirely but I couln’t find a (white) waffle piqu anywhere so I ended up buying this olive colored tweet. I used suede-leather scraps as accents for the pockets and leather buttons I had in my stash. It wasn’t as complicated to sew as I expected and I love the result. It’s nice to own something with a more unusual cut.

As always, there are more pictures on my blog

olive tweet, suede leather, leather buttons, white polyester lining

    Wow! It’s interesting how the tweed totally changes the look. I think that your version will be more versatile. Thanks for sharing!

    This is super cool! The fabric is so nice, and suits the jacket. I like this more than the original in the BWoF-magazine!

    I think it probably looks better in this colour! I love the result, I would definitely wear it.

      Thank you, that’s so nice to hear…or read in this case.
