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.
All jacket pieces are interfaced to give extra body.
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.
