Fleece Jacket Vest | Burda 9/2018 #109

Added Oct 15, 2018

Upstate, South C...






2nd Burda Challenge completed for October….. Super quick fun make, once I figured out which way to snip’ the seam at the shoulder/cut-on collar. Love the coziness of the fluffy fleece, though it makes the jacket/vest sort of more ‘boxy’ and less ‘drapey’. Love this already so much and think it will be worn lots when our weather begins to cool as a transition piece to Winter. All details, including where I snipped!!, at the blog. https://www.lisascarolina.com/2018/10/mini-capsule-wardrobe-item-4-burda.html #burdachallenge2018

Happy Sewing All!

    To be honest I didn’t like this pattern at all (actually I didn’t like the whole issue…). BUT your last photo really sells this vest to me!

      What a great compliment Elpida! You have made my day! You could probably make this in under an hour…. it’s that simple and quick. My fabric is so stiff it shows the boxiness a little more…. would be nice in a drapier, fluid fabric I think. The last photo is how I’ve been wearing it. :)

    Interesting vest, looks cosy…. I like your idea of a 4- piece capsule wardrobe!

      This is the first time I’ve tried to sew a mini-capsule wardrobe, and am enjoying the process. It’s nice to see the interchanging pieces come together. Thank you!! :)
