Another jacket, ever so cute

Pattern Description:Burda pattern 113 from the 12/2010 edition. A short jacket with interesting sleeves.

Pattern Sizing: 38 straight

Instructions: The whole jacket was easy, in fact only when it came to the sleeves I had to look at them.

Like I loved the sleeves and the fact that it was very short. I made it in the same fabric as one of the pants I recently made. So now I have a gray and black striped suit that is kinda funky and most certainly different, yet stylish

Fabric Used: From the free for all bucket at my sewing class. The same I used for pants. A cotton grey with black stripe. Very formal for work, but if you use it in a different way cute. The lining is also out of the free for all bucket. A pretty pink and blue flower patter that makes the inside look fresh and playful.

Pattern changes: None what so ever. I managed to make the jacket in a few weeks at class. Took about 12 hours in total I think. including drafting. I should have made the sleeves a little wider though – will do next time. Yoga has given me some serious arm muscle.

Recommended? yes yes and yes. I am thinking of making one in a very different type of fabric, a bit more bohemian. But first something different. In reality it is so simple you can make it quick now

Conclusion:Easy quick pattern. I doubt it will be a staple as it is too distinctive for that, but it is very cute and lovely. And on top of that I now have a very nice work suit.
