Description

This is my version of Burda’s Shawl Collar Wool Jacket 11/2014 #110.
I fell in love with this pattern, It’s feminine and has a retro touch. Things that I appreciate very much.

I’ve applied modern tailoring techniques to give it more structure. The result is a more smart look.

Some changes from the original:

• Narrowed the collar to button it up

• Added buttons

• Bound Buttonholes

I really enjoyed the result and I have been using it a lot.

Fabric: Vintage wool

Lining: cotton polka dots

    I saw your jacket only now, looking for a nice pattern :-). I love the way you made if for button-up. Do you remember by how many cm you shortened the collar? Thanks!

    Very chic! I love the asymmetric-looking collar.

    Well done!
