This Burda issue from October, brings a lot of fabulous patterns, included this exclusive from Karl Lagerfeld, this gorgeous folded front white jacket.
The pattern may look difficult but it isn´t. The trumpet sleeves are a delight to work. they are folded at the top and hold by a button.
I made some changes as always used to do. The buttons were covered with satin for making a contrasting look with the mate structure of the rest of the jacket.
A deep pleat at the back center of the linning.
Even though I cant follow the instructions because my magazines are in Dutch, this is very easy to ensemble, I didnt follow any instruction at all.
It has also 3 folded pockets. I made a little satin handkerchief for the upper pocket.
this is the outcome. It really didnt look as I made it. It is very versatile too, could be wear with jeans and looks gorgeous too!!

Material Notes

    Simply smashing! Your pockets are impeccable my dear! I find your pictures much more helpful in seeing the beauty of this design than the original…. It seems to have been made for you!

    Boyohboy, there is someone very quick. Magazine is out for only a few days, and you’re already done. I’m still working on the download shirt from that magazine. The jacket looks really gorgeous. Beautifully crafted.

    It looks really neat. I plan on making it, too, but I’m still on the hunt for the perfect fabric. At least I’ve already got the lining. That’s a start I guess.

      You should make it really is easy and gorgeous. Dont use thick fabric, maybe flannel would be good. this is actually a very thin fabric so I can wear it on summer and spring too but I have to use interface material for giving it some shape.
