I made Rosa jacket from Vintage Burda Pattern Collection kit ! Pattern for Rosa jacket is very simple.. The jacket has no collar, no pockets, two front pieces with only bust darts, sleeves with elbow darts.. Only back piece has a bit of fun and gives interesting details to this jacket.. There are pleats on shoulders and 3 darts at bottom of the back piece.. I wanted to make this jacket in brighter solid color fabric.. I wasn’t sure how pleats on the back of the shoulders would look like in a finished garment so I went with the fabric from my stash.. I found 1.5 m of this thin black and blue plaid wool, which was enough for making Rosa jacket.. I didn’t do any adjustments to the pattern.. I just added welt pockets, because it’s more practical if the jacket has pockets.. Instead of sewing invisible snaps on the jacket I made button holes and buttons covered with the fabric I used for the jacket.. For the lining I used gray stretch satin with white polka dots.. Satin is my go to fabric for linings of jackets and coats.. Usually it’s easy to sew, and you can just slip into the garment which is not the case if one uses fabrics like cotton..
