this is a pattern from burdastyle german issue nr 2 from 2011. the jacket is on page 57 pattern nr 126. ít took me, what felt an iternety to finish this project, as it had a lot of details, i have never made before. the pockets, the collarsolution and not to forget the details on the sleeves.
for the material, i used a blend of wool and cotton in a light beige and light brown herringbone and i found really lovely vintage buttons to go with it. as my client has been quite experimental (thank you bernhardine for trusting me :-) we took a dark violet silk lining and i loved, what came out of the hours and hours of work!
i learned so much with this project and know now, that i should not be afraid of any difficult details. next thing on the agenda are two pencil skirts for this jacket. one in the same material and one in a contrasting dark beige! stay tuned :-)
