Description

I had this blue batik wool fabric and wanted to sew an easy and warm jacket and I thought this pattern #140 Burda 12/2012 would be perfect. Since the hood was a bit too big i sewed two pleats at the top and I also made a tunnel to have a lace so I could pull it together. The seams are quite small, only 0,5cm since the seams are on the outside. I didn’t want to use lining since the wool is very comfy without :)
