I have recently purchased a length of rosette fabric – the taffeta fabric with rosettes all over. I want to make a jacket for an upcoming wedding anniversary but have been unable to locate (just don’t know where to look) a jacket pattern suitable for this type of fabric. Can someone point me in the right direction on this website. I am very familiar with Burda patterns and will have no problem copying one.

    Hi! I once did a wedding dress with beaded pearls and sequins. And it was a challenge, let me tell you. I can imagine your rosettes (when coming to seams) are going to have similar issues.

    My suggestion to you is to find a straight line pattern, perhaps over the hip, with one button, no collar. This way you’ll only have to slice off a minimum of rosettes and the minimalist style will enhance, not take away from, your beautiful fabric.

      Thank you! My thoughts entirely now. I was hoping that there might be a section of patterns out there of the thousands of jacket patterns, that were made specifically for that type or similar, of fabric.

      would you believe it!! whilst perusing the current options on Burdastyle mag I see a lovely jacket on the front of the winter mag…looks like it could be perfect! I had also considered a jacket in the blossoms collection – it is in alternate panels but I could have omitted the collar and integrated the panels so as to have it all one fabric….now time is of the essence – once again, thanks for your suggestion.

    Glad you found something to work with! You’ll have to post it when you’re finished. I’d love to see the finished product. :)
