Description

For this jacket I used a pattern from Burda fashion magazine 09/09 (I think), I had to enlarge the pattern so it would fit me. The fabric is a soft wool, which I used inside out, as it looked more “feminine” on this side.
I was a bit affraid it might “fluff” but it seemes good quality. For the lining I used a lilac satin. And I aded soft salmonpink buttons. The alterations and fittings took me some time, but I’m very happy with the result!
I wear It a lot!

    This is so pretty, feminine and elegant! The fabric looks warm and soft and the color is lovely! You know I loved this pattern from the first sight! I had traced it and cut the fabric and stiched it but didn’t finish it. I had a problem with the sleeves and I couldn’t find the right shoulder pads:(
