Asymmetrical Jacket and Skirt + Top

Added Feb 20, 2016

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






It’s my third version of this jacket, and I love the asymmetrical lines, the hood, sleeves and everything.. The pattern is from Burda 05/2008.
The asymmetrical skirt is made of the same wool fabric as the jacket, and I had to use twin-needles for the hem and edges. I’ve made a skirt like this before in wool blends, but then the edges didn’t fray so I just cut it as in the instruction.
For the top I’ve use three different fabric; black jersey, chiffon with stretch for the sleeves and the lady at the back cheers me up :) The pattern is from Burda 04/2009 and I’ve made another top earlier, and I like this pattern a lot :)

Material Notes

Wool, jersey and chiffon

    Very creative and crazy in the best sense! I like all the things together as well as separately! Who could not pay the attention to the girl wearing that? I am sure nobody ever:-)))

    Guess which item makes me crazy…..Yes, it’s that crazy top! Of course I’m a big fan of the skirt pattern and the little jacket is so cute…but I have an obsession with colorful scenes on clothes. Hopefully, I’ll upload my colorful scene one of these days. I ’ve spent all weekend begging my husband for some photos, but nothing yet….
