New York, New Yo...






The Jorinde blazer is truly the jacket for all seasons. Make it in a corduroy or wool to carry you through the rest of winter, slide your cell into the flap pockets, and you’re on your way. Or, try it in a lighter weight fabric to get prepared for spring. Give it the cool grandpa look by adding elbow patches, or go a bit more lady like and use some sparkling buttons on the sleeves!

    The instructions aren’t the best, as someone commented earlier, when are you meant to sew the lapel darts (you missed that bit out guys!) and the yoke caused me some trouble, following the instructions ‘Stitch the yokes onto the front pieces and the back pieces; seams 1 and 2.’

    Looking at the pattern piece, and the numbers 1 & 2, if I followed this, the yoke would be on backwards. It’s not clear how this should go on. Trial & error & close study of the pictures managed to sort it out, but perhaps diagrams or an extra lable (‘front’ perhaps?) on the yoke pattern piece would help…

    I’m making this now, and I have a question about the sleeves. They’re two piece sleeves, but don’t seem to have any of the curve that I normally see in patterns with this style of sleeve – am I missing something or doing something wrong? is the fact that this pattern has two pieces to the sleeves purely cosmetic, and not for fit?

    The collar scares me but a little fixing and small changes will help. I love the color, great for spring. … hehe, I see that model is curious about whats on the other side of the men’s room.

    Hi, thanks for the pattern burdastyle! I’ve seen that there was a sew-a-long for this jacket….so can anyone help me? I just can’t work out from the instructions how to attach the collar and what to do about the darts at the top of the fronts – when do they get sewn up? I’ve made a couple of shirts with collars before, but this is my first jacket. Any help would be appreciated! :-)

      The darts at the top front are referred to in step 6 as ‘lapel darts’. There isn’t actually any instruction about when to sew them, just to trim them. Sew them when you have done the waist dart & pocket.

      I’m making mine without a collar so I can’t help you with that I’m, afraid.

    I especially like the shoulder panels, but the collar looks strange. Maybe it was accidentally sewn upside down and that why it isn’t completely joined to the lapel. Still it’s nice up-to-date interpretation of the traditional blazer pattern.

    Looks like the back collar has some trouble because of the thickness of the fabric and the undercollar is showing significantly where it shouldn’t. When I saw this, I remembered a blog I read called “The Secret Pocket” had posted a great tutorial on how to compensate for this and make perfect collars a while back. I dug it up and you can check it out here:


    and here:


    I love the leather patches, but I would sew them a little closer to the edge so the excess doesn’t roll up.

    The jacket is very beautiful, stylish shape, different and look easier with this neck piece – could be amazing for my new jacket :-) I like it…

    Alright, the men’s restroom. Story is: We actually did use it. The women’s bathroom was not nice and we couldn’t ask the girl’s to change in it. It was some kind of emergency:)

    I love the color, I’m not crazy about the “bulk” of it. I like the elbow pads and I like the shoulder pieces as well, maybe a lighter weight fabric would do the trick. Great job, as always you all at Burdastyle make beautifully constructed clothing!

    I would want to make this just for the challenge. I like the details of the jacket. Yeah, what’s up with the men’s room??

    Oh, I love it! (I obviously have the most booring taste ever – my daughter also confirms that…) I like the collar, it brings out those shoulder pieces nice on the front side; I like the closure with only one button; I like your choice of materials and details for it, I’ll end up probably in producing a more-or-less copy of yours (so much for originality) since I like this one just the way it is. I would make one change though: I would go for the same color for the buttons as for the elbow patches.

    I like the jacket, I like thoes elbow pads. I have sewn a lined jacket with this type of slit at the sleeves. I was so confused about how to sew them with machine and hide everything. Finally I found that the lining piece needs it own pattern left and right, very interesting.

    Finally a real blazer! It’s a little bit boxy for my taste, but I really like those shoulder pieces.
