Peplum Jacket and Panel Leggings

Added Aug 13, 2015

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






The panel leggings have been on my mind since I saw the pattern, and now I found the right fabric to make it :) I have used cotton satin with stretch combined with courtelle snake print foil which I think was a good choice. The peplum jacket is also made of the same fabric (it feels like leather) and for the lining I have used red micro satin. I have made the jacket once before if you like to see it. I’m very happy with the result :)

Material Notes

Cotton Satin and courtelle snake print foil.




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Cotton, Knits/Jersey, Satin

      Thanks for your lovely words Mokara! I’m sure you gonna like this pattern a lot too, it is so unique. The jacket is my favorite and I have made a lot of garment with a bit of the same fabric so it’s very versatile :)

    Thank you so much Ellen for your help. I am new to the Bruda world and sometimes I get confused whether seam allowance is added to inside darts and odd shapes when there is not enough room to add the seam allowance.

    You certainly know what you are doing. The garments you make are so beauitful. They all look perfect on you. Hope my jacket turn out as great as yours.

    Thanks again Emily

    Hi Ellen

    What a great job – you do look amazing. Wonder if you could help. I am in the process of making this jacket but I am a little confused on how to handle the side dart at the waist. Do you add a seam allowance to the slit? There isn’t any room for it. Or do you cut the dart out at the lines and sewing it at the 5/8 ".

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Emily, I’m happy to help if I can.. You’re right, you have to cut it open with seam allowance so you can sew it together and thereafter you can sew the other dart. Hope it will be nice! Wishing you Good luck :)
