Burda 12-2008 #119 Jacket

Here's the jacket. I still have a little work to do like sewing two snaps to the inside but it's 99% done. I wish I could wear it tomorrow. I really like it. Here it is lightened so you can see the details.


It is not this grape color.



This is the true color of the jacket.


This is the work that still needs to be done.



Front details.


I ended up lining the fabric with dark brown (darker than this) Ambience. It now slides over my clothing much nicer.


More front details.


Here's the full review for those of you who are interested. My next project will be an easy knit top for Hawaii.

I'm really loving your jacket both the style and colour and can't wait for the December BWOF to hit the newsagents here in Australia. Enjoy wearing it!

Great jacket and fabulous colour! Glad to see a petite pattern done ... from over here with another A cup, that FBA must have felt like good value. Your topstitching looks really good. I noted you used Getterman heavy duty ... any topstitching tips re technique would be appreciated (it's one of my personal sewing goals for this year to improve). Congratulations on the jacket.

Your jacket looks great!

Love the jacket! Woman, you sure make a good case for getting one of those Snapsetters. After my Coverstitch comes home, that's what I'm looking into.

This is a fabulous jacket, great job once again. Hope it helps with the cold!

Wow that turned out beautifully - I LOVE it!

Dawn, I love it, especially the gold details! This is on my to-do list, but I'm not petite so I'll be tweaking the pattern a bit. Great color as well.

Myra said...

I love purple, too and this is great.

Great jacket! Just wanted to let you know that my husband drew your name for my pencil roll pattern give-away. If you send me an email with your snail mail address, I'll get it out to you asap! gwendolyn_campbell@hotmail.com

Okay, now I am going to have to do an asymmetrical jacket. I LOVE it!!! It looks great on you--style, color, everything. I never cease to be amazed at how efficient you are and how quickly you sew. It truly inspires me. I also love how you regularly update your blog. It is one of my favorites.

Karen said...

That is one beautiful zipper. And I'm now needing a snapsetter, you enabler, you.

I love the purple - your jacket looks great on you !

I pretty much love everything you make and this is no exception. It's so cute! I've had my eye on this pattern and am so glad to see it made up.

I'm curious--did you do the seams like version A (right sides together) or B (overlapping)? Also, do you think a beginner could handle this (especially since it seems a lining is really necessary)?

Beautiful Jacket Dawn!
