Description

I made this jacket a few weeks ago and I have worn it out multiple times! Our Silk Motorcycle Jacket is a fantastic jacket sewing pattern, and I made no style or fit alterations to it (which I usually do). I sewed it in a cream/oatmeal colored raw silk and used silver metal zippers and studs as my accents. Read more about my jacket project here.

    Well, I’m working through the videos now..about 3/4 finished. By Burda’s downloadable size chart, I measure in at a size 40. I worked up a muslin and it was too big. I also have narrow shoulders, and 3 muslins later settled on cutting a 36 at the shoulders and graded out to a 38 at the waist and hip. I cut a 38 sleeve as well. In addition to my normal 1/2 in forward shoulder adjustment, I needed to pinch out about 1/2 In a weird diagonal directly under the front dart to remove some puffiness. However, I do have a lower bust point (about 1/2 inch).

    It’s a project that seemed overwhelming at first, but is really coming together well for me. It’s challenging, but not outside my skill set if I take it slow. If you’ve made a coat or jacket before, you will be ok. I recommend making a muslin first. But I believe that should be done for any project this involved.

      Can’t wait to see your finished jacket! In other burdastyle.com patterns I often find myself in between sizes, I however don’t make muslins but I am starting a more complicated pattern soon and I think I will have to make a muslin.

    Edgy and chic. Great little jacket. I can see how it could become the “denim jacket” alternative. Lovely!

      Thanks so much! I totally see this jacket as an alternative to a den min jacket, and even a leather one!

    I was so disappointed when I missed the deadline for this class! Question… I have narrow shoulders and a high bust point and often find these areas way too big with most patterns. How does this pattern seem to fit in those areas?

      Oh no! I believe we will be running the course again in the future, I will let you know if this is so. This pattern actuality fits well in the shoulders, I went down a whole size than I usually make in BurdaStyle patterns because I find the jackets fit big and in doing that I find the snugger fit around my shoulders good and still comfortable.
