♫ ♪ The Killing Moon

I planned to sew this jacket since the pattern came out in Burda 10/2010 model #112 .. I liked the simple silhouette and that it came in size 34.. My problem with Burda patterns is that although in RTW I wear size 36, better fit I have with size 34.. That especially implies to the patterns for outerwear.. If there’s no size 34 (or 17) I have to size down..

The first step after having the pattern was finding the fabric.. That wasn’t the problem here.. But time to sew was.. Since I like fast “one day” projects, the ones that are more time consuming are usually in wait.. In March last year, I decided that it is time to make the jacket, but in the meanwhile I bought new fabric for it..

The fabric is a wool blend, soft and nice to work with.. I didn’t make any alterations.. The only things to think about were matching the stripes and sewing welt pockets.. For the lining I used stretch satin..

    Lovely jacket. Worth taking the time for those projects that take longer.

      Thank you :) Soon I’ll see everything in stripes.. Somehow most of my projects have stripes or some other pattern to match :)
