Burda Style 10/2008 116



These pictures were a long time coming so Ta Dah!

For this jacket I used a double knit from Fabric Mart, I love the color and I originally was going to make a dress and then I came across this pattern and my plans change.

The jacket is unlined, I'm not showing you the inside because my serger thread is grey, so far the only color I have, not much of a match for this beautiful purple. No changes to the design or order of construction were made, just followed Burda's instructions. I did stitch the neckline facing down by stitching in the ditch, no flopping facings for me! I chose a black separating zipper, since I thought it would look nice with a black belt.

Do I like this jacket? Oh yes! It will fit very nicely with my existing wardrobe.

Worn here with Vogue 8663
