Here is my version of a Burberry jacket (I used this picture for inspiration). This jacket will perfectly match with my copycat of the burberry skirt. OK, I have to admit that it’s not a big deal for creativity (by the way, thanks a lot Burberry, your drafting are so beautifull, I don’t feel the need to be creative by myself), but it was a very funny challenge to combine patterns, find similar fabrics and stuffs to make this jacket.
I mixed some patterns :
This one for the upper part
This vogue pattern for the bottom
This one for the shoulder tabs
And this one (I totaly changed the shape) for the side pockets on the peplum.
I didn’t put a zipper on the jacket like on the original version, because I didn’t like it. And I made real lapels in a different kind of wool instead of making fake one. The funniest part of this project was the buttons (and not the 10 bound buttonholes !). I was unable to find 16 (10 on the front, 6 on the sleeves) 4-holes gold buttons in the right size. So, guess what ? I tried to put some gold plating on very cheap wood buttons from my stash. Yes: I used gold sheets! That was my first experiment with gold sheets and I find it very easy to use. After wearing my jacket almost every day during a week, it seems that the gold sheet will not fade off or scratch easily or very fast. I’m pretty happy with it. The jacket is, of course, fully lined in silk charmeuse (can you really imagine a jacket with gold-platted buttons and polyester lining ?)
And yes, I made my jeans from the Jalie jeans pattern (favorite jeans pattern of all time)!
