Denim Biker Jacket

I simply love printed fabric, and when I found this in Copenhagen I couldn’t resist to buy some :) I found the pattern in BurdaStyle 01/2017 and thought it would be nice to sew a biker jacket. I recognized it was a bit short, so I added a few cm even though I had already shorten the zipper.. I think denim jacket is nice to wear both to a dress, skirt or pants :)

    Beautiful Biker jacket Ellen and the printed version is just right for the spring/ summer season. I made a similar project last month but it’s a winter version so I show it later. It suits you beautiful and has a great fit.

    What a great jacket, Ellen – I love the edgy vibe! I’m about to start the desert moto jacket – eek! – but I thank Burda that they produced a sewing lesson video for it!

      I’ve been thiking about this jacket the whole weekend. I’m going to Berlin at the end of June and I was shocked to realise that the temperature will be between 11 and 21! I have to act quickly so I’ll start it tomorrow and it will probably be the only thing I’ll wear (and take photos of…) up there….

      Did you line it?

      Oh, lucky you! Berlin is nice this time of year, so this jacket will be perfect for travelling :) I didn’t line it since I use denim, so it depends on which fabric you choose..
      Good luck my friend! I’m looking forward to see it :)
