Spring jacket

Added Feb 16, 2010

Oslo, Norway






I fell in love with a yellow jacket from the 09 spring collection by Malene Birger. Since I couldnt find it in stores, I decided to make my own version. I modified a Vouge pattern, used a light wool blend fabric, satin details on the sleeves and buttons and a light purple lining to create som contrast. The bow is connected with a safetypin, so I can remove it if I feel like it.




Garment Type
Blends, Linen, Satin, Wool

    When I see that jacket, I think Malene Birger can be very proud of having you as a fan! It’s absolutely amazing!

    So cute! The colors look so awesome for spring. It would even be nice in a jewel tone for fall.

    This coat is SO beautiful. Great choice of fabric. And I totally agree with you: some days you might not feel like a bow. And some days, it’s totally worth the statement.
