Description

I used Burda 115 as the basis. I closed the neck darts off and changed the neck line before cutting the fabric. Too many shaped areas made it too fussy with all the stripes. I added pockets, and eyelets to show the pocket lining. I didn’t line the jacket but made bias, and lined only the lower part of the sleeves so it would show if turned up. I left the bust dart for extra shape, this is a nice touch. The reason I used this pattern is the side piece – it doesn’t have a side seam!
Really great fitting jacket for all plus sizes too! I didn’t alter the shape, just made it an inch longer. Used thin tailored shoulder pads as it needed it, the fabric has a more cotton double jersey handle.

Material Notes

navy/black stripe viscose rayon double knit from my fabrics in the UK.
Gorgeous Fabrics for the lining: super soft dot print crepe de chine – true blu.
