I had this fabric and didn’t know what to do out of it. Because it’s slightly transparent, it is not so suitable for blouses or pants. Despite the warmth here in Germany at the moment, I’m freezing! So I wanted a light summer-jacket and took the Ellinor-pattern in size 40 to have it a little bit wider and made it 10 cm longer. I made a jacket out of it, added four buttons and a belt for closure. The collar was made by accident but I really like it, as the whole kimonoesk appearance of that jacket.
light-weight cotton, slightly transparent
me! It’s the first time I altered a pattern :)
Burdastyle for such a great simple pattern, sewed it within a day!
