I made this jacket a while ago, but I haven’t got around to taking any pictures until now. Story of my sewing life :)
I found this fabric in a remnant box and it was labeled as a curtain fabric. Can’t really imagine a room with curtains like this, but maybe that’s just me. On the other hand, I didn’t have any problems imagining a jacket out of it! I already had this pattern on my mind (it’s #110 from Burda 02/2010 ), It has a princess seams on the back which allowed me to play around with the stripes. I liked it’s cropped style and also I have never made anything with this type of closures before. Thought it would be interesting to try it out and as it turned out it really was, especially when you’re trying to close the jacket. I should include a gif of me performing that action, very entertaining stuff.
My favorite part of the jacket is the lining – it’s a bright pink! I love the little pop of color, it was much needed since the main fabric is in such dull shades. Also, my friend and I found this huge orange wall in her neighborhood – perfect background for this outfit!
Hope you’ll like it :)
