Scuba Jacket & Skirt

Added May 17, 2015

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I just had to buy this great Scuba Digi-print fabric! My intention was to sew a dress, but I change my mind when I saw this peplum jacket in May issue and I thought it would be perfect for the fabric. Then I had enough to make a skirt as well. I love this skirt pattern from the first time when I saw my sewing friend Oksana had made it. The pattern is from Burda 03/2009 and I’ve made it once before, so if you like you can have a look here. For the jacket I’ve used satin with stretch as lining. I like to have the possibility to close the jacket so I had a nice little hook with stones and it was perfect for the mission ;)

Material Notes

Muliticolored Digi-print Scuba and satin with stretch for the lining.

    Sometimes I accidentally stumble onto ‘old makes’ that result in some great ideas – love this outfit! Also, love the fabric! This is definitely summer chique so I hope for you there are a few more summery days coming up this autumn. I have the jacket pattern at home so that’ll go straight onto my to-make-list, and I’ll just have to find a similar skirt pattern to finish the outfit. Thanks for being such a great inspiration source Ellen :)

      Thanks for such lovely words! I’m impressed by your sewing skills as well! You should also try some of the Burda Easy Fashion magazine. The instruction is very good with pictures step by step. Budapest is a very nice city you can be proud of! So maybe I will see you in Norway one day ;-)

    Such things confuse me a lot: on one hand I like them so much than can’t find right words to express the impression at once, on the other hand – I can’t but comment because I like the suit very much! Locked circle:-))) It is some ideal print which only can be seen in sewing dreams and the pattern matched it very well. The skirt is absolutely one of Burda’s best. Your style and taste and the quality of the work amaze as well. I guess a catwalk is a right place to show this model ! P.S. And thank you for the mentioning:-)
