Description

A very nice linen three quarter cuff jacket with pleated pockets. This was inspired by a style in a very old backdated issue of burda magazine. This jacket was what made me first interested in burda style from then to now. It was a style from February 2009. Although it might seem very old to me it still has edge, very modern and not to mention very chic for the office.

I modify the style by making the cuff very small and remove the buttons. With the slight modification it is a very awesome jacket.

What do u think? Chic or not?

    It’s very nice, I love it! It’s an example for what you can do with “old” patterns. You have done a good job!

    I love your jacket! I think classic jackets like this never really go out of style.
