This is a little cropped blazer I’ve made last year. I used Burdas december issue, pattern ’#107. The velvet and the beaded epaulets remind me of a crossover of a tamer-jacket and something Michael Jackson would have worn.

I blogged about it here: katarinasellsseashells.blogspot.com/2010/10/zircus-meets-mj.html

Material Notes

cotton velvet, beads, padding, old blouse




Garment Type
Military, Rock, Vintage
Blends, Velvet

    Was für ein toller Blazer! So einen will ich auch, der Samt passt so gut zu diesem Schnitt. Großartig.

    This is a beautiful jacket! Very edgy! You added so much “coolness” to this jacket by adding details like the lining with animal print and the embroidery!

      Thanks, the lining is fun. I usually go for solid colors but this was actually a blouse from my mom that I’ve just sewn in. A very easy and time saving method.

    What a beautiful jacket. I like the lining and the embellishments. I also really like the presentation in the first photo. I’ve never seen velvet look so nice.

      Thank you, I just found out this weekend how to work with my image editing software. I plan on doing it this way all the time.

      What’s the name of the software?

      It’s called paint.net and (at least the german version) a freeware. It’s not too complicated and there are a ton of tutorials online.
