My wardrobe needed a vivid infusion of color, so this finely textured multicolor bouclè helped me to create a classical look with trendy appeal. The pattern is from Burda style 2/2013_107 with some adjustments.

Whether it’s thrown over a dress or worn with jeans, it works always fine.

Before cutting my fashion fabric I measured the pattern and found out that it’s quite loose and as I prefer more fitted style I modified it accordingly. Also I lengthen the sleeves as I’m not particularly into three-quarter length.

Pattern modifying

All jacket pieces are interfaced to give extra body.

Interfacing

I learned a lot while making this garment and added a couture touch: fabric covered snaps. This is a great technique that is used in couture sewing to disguise metal snaps.

Another element I tried for the first time to make my jacket look nicer from inside is a piping between the facing and the lining.
