Women's Tailored Jacket

Added Jun 28, 2010

New York, New Yo...






There’s something empowering about wearing a tailored jacket, especially one which you have made for yourself. Say hello to the Jorinde jacket, complete with front yokes, top-stitching, flap pockets and guess what? This pattern is FREE!
For today’s Androgynous variation we adjusted the pocket flaps to be straight- not curved as the pattern piece indicates. We chose a subtle gray wool suiting fabric, a light silk lining and muted shell buttons. This jacket style looks great with high-waist trousers or thrown over a dress on a cool summer night…
Styling Notes: “I wanted to show this jacket in an androgynous fashion. I paired the jacket with tough looking high-waist Balenciaga trousers and a more demure ivory silk vintage blouse. The hat was made for a friend in Denmark and adds an alluring silhouette to almost anything you wear it with.” -alison

Material Notes

Self: 2 yards (1m 90 cm) Lining: 56“ (1m 40cm) wide, 58“ (1m 45cm) long

      It’s actually eva that’s been altered. And yeah new patterns are the best way for a company to make money I thought?

      If only we had endless funds for production right now- but we don’t. We’re feeling the repercussions of this recession just as much as anyone else and to be frank, I have to be creative about what we DO have. And what is that? A vast catalog of inspiring, wonderful patterns. As the Creative Director of BurdaStyle I have to work with what we’ve got. It’s extremely expensive to produce just 1 pattern. I love this jacket pattern and think it is important to show the various ways one can interpret a pattern, as there are endless possibilities within a single pattern. It hurts me to find these negative comments just as much as it frustrates you to not have brand new products each week. I am working hard to stay inspired amidst this community and trying my best to keep things fresh. I think patterns are extremely valuable and full of potential. We are celebrating what we’ve already accomplished until we have the budget to bring our new ideas to light.

      Yes, this is the Jorinde pattern, not the Eva pattern. The pocket flap has been slightly modified, but that looks like the only change based on the photos.

      Alison, I think you are doing a lovely job with the restyles. They serve as a reminder that a classic style has many possibilities and design is really about imagination and choices. It is creativity & inspiration that bring me back to this site, not just the patterns.

      Just an idea; I would love to see a restyle for one of the jacket patterns in an unlined summer weight fabric such as seersucker, linen, or denim.

      Did I accidentally mark wzrdreams inappropriate? If so sorry I didn’t mean to!

      I doubt anyone wants to upset people but I don’t mind restyles so much but every week for weeks and weeks it is something frustrating. The hat tutorial was really good and because it’s something new it went down well perhaps burda could go down the smaller tutorials road until they get back on their feet?

      Also not to be harsh but people post their opinions on every side of all subject matters on the internet. I wouldn’t take it hurtfully.
