Layla Jacket

Added Dec 21, 2011

i was given the pattern butterick b4929 to use and i had always wanted to try my hand with pin tucking so i created this jacket for my good friend Layla. I admit the pin tucking could be better but it was difficult working with such a large piece of fabric. At least she likes the jacket

Material Notes

i used a thin grey wool i had been given and took the zip out of a jacket i got at a second hand store. apparently it is hard to get an open ended metal tooth zip in a 40cm length as i found out.

    Wow, who would think you could make something so cool and modern looking out of that pattern. You’re a visionary!

      Thank you so much! I hated the pattern but i had to find something to do with it. I am glad you approve of my interpretation.

    The pin tucks look very good and well made. The jacket is very nice and looks great on.

    The jacket is wonderful and the tucks look beautifully executed! I’m feeling really inspired by this piece.
