Pinstripe Denim Jacket

Added Dec 23, 2010

Auckland, New Ze...






This is my version of the Cropped Jacket pattern
It was really quick and easy to make because I did not line the jacket

unfortunately I did not pay enough attention to the instructions – THERE IS NO SEAM ALLOWANCE ON THE PATTERN! so i had to put an extra panel in on the sides
I also had (and always have with all sleeve patterns – my lack of skill!) too much sleeve, too little sleevehole. so i turned the extra sleeve into box-pleats as per photo 2

only real problem though was that the instructions didnt say where to put the peplum – does it look a little high to you?

Material Notes

Charcoal pinstripe denim
jeans-studs as buttons.




Garment Type
Business, Casual

    Looks great to me, I love pinstripes :) I’d attach the peplum at the natural waist, which is what you’ve done I think. It’s a Burda magazine pattern isn’t it? I’m sure I’ve got the issue somewhere, I might have a go at it myself at some point…
