Added Aug 7, 2009
I used Burda Style’s plus sized Nadine mods which were to remove the back yoke gathers, remove the gathers in the cuff and turn it into a slight bell shape. Also added my own mod of moving the front yoke fullness into the armhole and then turning it into a dart.
The upper collar was reinforced with some heavy weight fusible interfacing. Great mods, makes for an interesting transitional jacket.
This fabric is a wool/silk blend purchased from emmaonesock.com.
