Kimonoesk Ellinor Jacket

Added May 13, 2008

by polychromatin

Halle, Germany






I had this fabric and didn’t know what to do out of it. Because it’s slightly transparent, it is not so suitable for blouses or pants. Despite the warmth here in Germany at the moment, I’m freezing! So I wanted a light summer-jacket and took the Ellinor-pattern in size 40 to have it a little bit wider and made it 10 cm longer. I made a jacket out of it, added four buttons and a belt for closure. The collar was made by accident but I really like it, as the whole kimonoesk appearance of that jacket.

Material Notes

light-weight cotton, slightly transparent





me! It’s the first time I altered a pattern :)

Burdastyle for such a great simple pattern, sewed it within a day!

    Congrats on your first altered pattern :)!

    The fabric is beautiful. Great light summer jacket!

    Du frierst? Es ist doch so schön warm im Moment! Raus in die Sonne und durch Bewegung oder Sport wird dir sicher warm ;).
