Tartan Army Jacket

Added May 18, 2011

Warwickshire, Un...






Jacket from Burda Children’s no 9603. Made in Tartan wool with thrifted buttons. Daughter no 1 absolutely adores this jacket. The pattern has applied pockets which I left off, as requested… I have made this jacket in various fabrics, with and without the pockets, and it always looks good. It is really quick to run up too, especially if you leave the pockets off!

Material Notes

Wool and thrifted buttons.




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Classic, Preppy

      Thanks. Her art teacher has already tried to steal it!

    It looks fantastic! I would have never dare using that kind of fabric for a jacket, but now that I see it, it’s gorgeous!

      It has been waiting for the right moment for about 3 years now! It is a rather large plaid, but by using a pattern that has no panels I made sure it wasn’t too chopped up, and the pattern isn’t lost.
