Oklahoma City Me...






I made this back in October 2015. I wanted something a little different to wear to the Ballet. This is what I came up with. I absolutely love this little jacket. I still wear it today and get many compliments.

I much prefer Burda patterns to the many others out there. The patterns seem to be scaled to my body type and therefore, I make very little alterations. I also adore the styles! As you can see, I shortened and shaped the bottom of this kimono jacket to fit and enhance my shape.

With that said, when it comes to the instructions, I may read them thru and then I put them away. I have learned it is much better to just move forward without them. I find them to be a bit confusing.

Material Notes

I believe I bought both fabrics at .www.voguefabricsstore.com but honestly couldn’t tell you when.




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual, Evening Wear
Organza, Satin

    This is gorgeous. I must admit I’m hopeless with instructions as well. I normally just go for it by looking at the picture x

      Awe thank you! I am glad I am not the only one who puts those instructions aside. ;)
