Jacket for a wedding

Added May 8, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






This jacket is based on pattern #101 Burda 05.2008. I like this style very much and I think it’s nice with the zipper. The fabric is Cotton with a bit stretch, and the quality is a kind of twill.
Instead of lining I have used bias on the inside.
Our son’s girlfriend had this outfit in a wedding and I think she is gorgeous :)

Material Notes

Cottontwill with stretch.

    Beautiful jacket and I like how it looks with that skirt, the fabrics are so different but as a pair attract a lot of attention. I’m so glad I joined this site because every day some of my favourite patterns is made by my sewing friends and so I can admire the ready clothes without making and wearing them myself:-)))
