This is my short jacket with 7/8 sleeves made from velvet and lined.
I bought this fabric a time ago on sale ( because I liked it very much ) and at first I did not know what I should make from it
Later I found the pattern in Burda and I thought that this one should be the right one.
The results you can see on the photo’s.

Burda 11/2007

    Thank you all for your compliments. It is very important for me to hear what other people think about my ideas and fabric’s or furniture’s I have chosen. To answer your question Kana. I have bought these buttons a while ago ( before I bought the fabric ) and during the sewing I thought that they should look good in combination with this fabric.

    i think it looks lovely, it is nice to see a jacket in a different pattern instead of the old plain material that gets used. It has inspired me to make a jacket out of material like you have choosen, congratulations on the great job.

    I think it’s quite brave to make a jacket in such a bold print (although it’s a great retro style print) but it looks very good!
