Description

This is a project based on the Jorinde Jacket. I altered the front of the jacket to take out the collar and the pocket – to make the jacket a little more simple / streamlined. I replaced the front piece with two pieces from the Steffi jacket (had to alter these a little to fit with the yoke piece and the sleeves from the Jorinde).

I made this up in the most beautiful italian black MP ponti fabric from tessuti – I highly recommend this “ponti” for a jacket choice – it is heavy enough to hold the shape of a jacket and the stretch is easy to put together and really soft and lovely to wear. I lined the jacket in a silk / cotton blend – very soft also. Looks quite nice with the cuffs turned back to give the black a lift.

I am pleased with how this one came together. Really pretty simple sewing for a jacket! :)

    Thank you! :) I think it was pretty easy – especially if you use a fabric with some stretch in it, as this will make it easier when you put the sleeves in. Also just be careful when you cut out the front (using the steffi pattern) that you make them fit at the top with the yoke piece from the Jorinde (if you look at the pattern pieces I think that will make sense!) Let me know if you need any other info and thanks again for your lovely comment! Good Luck :)

    Wicked! I love it! I would like to make one since it became such a must-have in my city and I’m asking you: are you sure it was kinda easy to sew? I’m a beginner and any tips would help. Thank you and congrats again for your work!
