This is a jacket for early spring. I have wanted to challenge this pattern but I wasn’t sure if it would suit me… I think lively young girls would go well in this military jacket, but I am rather matured, so I tried to attenuate the strong character of “uniform” and to make it “light”. I like the result and think it’s OK in the end, it still makes me look “in costume” though!
very stiff cotton/acrylic/nylon tweed. pink cupro for the liner. hand-made covered buttons.
Since this jacket has a rather boxy silhouette, I recommend all to choose your fitter size and to use soft fabric as exactly Burda team has done. It was hard for me to fit it to myself because the fabric was not that soft or stretchy. I sincerely hope that nobody will have such trouble (any more)!!!
