Talea Jacket

Added Jan 15, 2008

by ceregana

Berlin, Germany






This is a jacket i made out of the talea coat pattern. I made the front sides overlap, lengthen the sleeves and added a straight piece at hips height. On the side i added some pleats to make it look more casual. The collar you can wear open, but i forgot to take some pictures of that.
ps. cannot link it with the pattern…

Material Notes

Blue wool velours, 2.5 meter.
Light blue lining -2 meter.

    This is very interesting! Your creation inspires to not just follow the patterns but create something unique of your own. I love your idea!

    Thank you very much for the nice comments! I do like the original a lot, but i didn’t really needed a long coat.

    The jacket looks awesome, much better then the coat and that collar is very versatile. I wish there was weather for it here too, I’d make one…

    Oh! and I love the buttons and all that topstitching. The pictures are great too!!!
