Lemon Check Eva

Added Mar 8, 2008

Colchester, Unit...






my 2nd Eva! I’ve shortened it about 5cm, lined it, used the Hikaru cuffs. The sleeves are extra long and open at the bottom. I wanted to be able to turn them up and see the black fabric. I’m thinking about adding a couple of buttons at the cuffs… what do you think?

Material Notes

not sure about the fabric, it’s quite thick…

I’ve had the black one for years,

yellow polyester lining,

3 big black buttons I found in my grandma’s button box




Garment Type


Burdatyle for the great patterns

MarmotaB for sending the thread to the video “how to line a jacket”

Benedikta for the very helpful video!

    I like the contrast in colors. It would look good with buttons on the cuffs. Great jacket!

    I LOVE this pattern. It defiently looks like something a teen to an adult would wear. I will try this pattern once I get the right fabric .

    Oh, I missed this… I’m glad I could be at least a bit helpful for creating this beautiful outfit. I love the black edges.

    Makes me think of lime and watermelon. Mm, green. :D Lovely green colour… As afore stated, the pattern matches perfectly. The collar and other black details gives it edge. Very lovely jacket!

    this is very nice. i really like the fabric. you matched the plaid up beautifully, and i like the sleeves. i’m not sure about buttons on the cuffs, part of why i like the sleeves is because they’re open. i think it would still look good with buttons though.

    I love it! Buttons on the cuffs would be great as a finishing touch, but it still looks wonderful without them.
