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…
Red cotton for the shell
Flawy Chiffon for the lining (lilac, with red, mauve and orange dots)
