jacket with lace trimming à la Chanel

I used Burdas pattern #104 of this years november issue. I recycled a trench I sewed earlier this year but the fabric was horrible to work with: bulgy and frayed just by looking at it. I quilted all pattern pieces to nettel cloth to eliminate those problems and it worked out pretty well. I’m very pleased with the result. I did not only use the outer fabric but also part of the lining as a base for the lace trimming and for the front facings. I lined the jacket with nougat brown poly lining and used two hooks and eyes as closure instead of a long zipper as suggested by the pattern.

I blogged about it here:

    Wow, very nice! It seems too short for my taste, though… but I love the fabrics and the lace, I can´t imagine how you made the lace trimming, it looks so proffesional!

      Thank you, I usually go for longer jackets as well but as I had a limited amount of fabric to work with, I couldn’t make the hem as long as I wanted to. It’s the right length according to the pattern though, but I’m taller than the Burda standard woman they created the patterns for (who is 168cm tall), so that might be a reason why it’s running on the shorter side on me.
