Burberry inspired Quick Zipped Waist Frayed Blazer

Added Feb 22, 2013

Somewhere, Ireland






Quick as it only took me 2 hours to get this far.

I didn’t want to spend money my shopping budget dried out quicker than I hoped so I called in to the charity store to get some budget friendly fabric…next thing I know I bought about a meter or so beautiful 80% wool material. I had struggled with the pattern as it requires over 1.50 m of fabric but I took out from the collar all the way down and managed to secure a lovely blazer for me :)
The zippers cost me €4.80+€2 for the fabric…tadaaaa!

I used 4 zips, two at the waist and two on the sleeves.

Ps.: I still have some fraying to do…

I love this pattern, although it meant to be for shearling jackets I keep on designing alternatives instead :)

    You are having fun with that pattern, aren’t you! Another great, striking make, though I really liked the quilted number. Happy fraying!

      So much fun indeed, this pattern is so versatile though especially for a dreamer like me I just can’t help it :)
      The quilted version is the best so far, although I never wear it…
      Thanks so much for your input I loved it :D

      I’m a big fan myself but on a very tight budget so I try to do my bits which benefits so many ways. Always progressing my skills, less spending and just having a wonderful time basically :)

      I’m glad you like it and I swear it was one of the easiest projects!
