Description

It was not easy to choose a pattern for the suit’s jacket to make it matched to the skirt, that was the undisputable decision:), by style and not to break proportions which are very important in suits. But at last this pattern won (actually that issue of Burda was one of the best for me, I made several projects from it!).

The jacket is from Burda magazine 10/2006 #107, my only modification – omitted ruffles.

Material Notes

The fabric is both tweed and velvet so I had to be attentive with the direction of the pile. It is very nice and it gives so nice shot effect while wearing. My only note, the fabric is a little stretching so I could made a smaller size.

      Thank you!
      I agree, the relief makes the breast shape very nice and doesn’t need extra work with an iron as we need to do for darts or Vienna reliefs.
