I was a bit fed up with dresses, so I felt like trying something a bit harder! Why not a tailored jacket!!! It is again based on a Burda pattern from the june issue.
I felt like using a quirky lining because the jacket is pretty classic, so, I used polka dots! It was my first attempt to tailoring, and man I hated it at first! But I am really happy with the result!
I made a few alterations:
- At the back, under the waist, I made the pieces a bit bigger so it marks more the waist
- On the front, I curved the bottom and used “bra clips” instead of buttons.
At the moment, I am making a dress with the same fabric as the lining, it’s going to be lovely!
The photos were taken in the basement…
