Pea jacket, medal brooch & jogger pants

Added Nov 13, 2016


Hesse, Germany






Hello everybody,
this is my brand new outfit – consisting of:
- Alpaca short jacket in pea coat cut
- jogger pants
- a medal brooch

All self-made.
The pants are based on a pattern from the Burda Easy magazine fall/winter 2016, and the jacket is the cropped pea coat #118 Burda 10/2016.
I saw an outfit with medal brooches in Burda 11/2016 that inspired me for making a medal brooch myself, I used grosgrain ribbon, bias tape and an earing-pendant for this.
More about this in my sewing and fashion blog for women 50 up

Bye Philo

Material Notes

jacket: alpaca tweed, lining, piping, buttons
pants: heavy crepe jersey
brooch: grosgrain ribbon, bias tape, pendant, brooch needle

      Hallo, schön von dir zu hören, wir haben uns ja aus den Augen verloren. Die Hose fand ich erst gewöhnungsbedürftig und alle gucken deswegen, aber sie ist eben nicht alltäglich und – wie du schreibst – praktisch und bequem. Gruß Philo

    Gorgeous outfit and you have styled this perfectly. I love the jacket as the fabrics lovely. The trousers I never looked at in the magazine but I certainly will now. The brooch is a fab finishing touch and reminds me of one’s I had in the 80’s .You are bang on trend with the retro look.love everything xx

      Hi Mary! Yes it’s a retro look but I think with a pair of jeans this jacket will look different. I gave the trousers-pattern a chance but wasn’t sure if I would like the cut, but I do! It is very comfy. Bye, Philo
