It’s a variation of a pattern, I’ve used before: Burda 03/2010 pattern #102. I redrafted the front to make it double-breasted, changed the collar shape, redrafted the sleeves and added pockets to the side seams. The whole project is inspired by a modcloth jacket.
Pattern matching went quiete well except for the raglan sleeves, but I don’t mind. Also I love the lining, it’s a butterfly emroidered cotton.
The inspiration pic and more details can be found on my blog
cotton canvas, cotton shirting, metal buttons
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
