It looks great from here - I can't enlarge your picture, probably because I got here while you're still working on it :-)

Hey this is COOL! I have been interested in this pattern for ages but not sure how it works on me and fabrics etc., so still haven't done it, love your version with obi belt, thanks for the review!

Jaeng, this is just a stunning piece of work! Despite the minimum of seams, the jacket has shape and curve at all the right places. The microsuede is perfect; and I love the single button at bust level. Sleek, sophisticated and definitely Asian inspired. Quite a beauty! -Lily

What an interesting jacket! I like the design changes you made. It looks nothing like any duvet cover I've ever seen. :)

I was thinking about making the original jacket from the 11/2007 issue, now I'm reconsidering. This is gorgeous and I absolutely love that it started otu as a duvet cover. Stylish recycling!

I love your interpretation of this pattern and the Naomi top, JJ! I, too, did a double take after I realized that I own the November issue and your jacket looks way better! :)

Very beautiful. Good to know that seams can be eliminated. That is a new one on me.

Hello, thank you so much for very nice compliments. I am into minimal seam projects right now. Everytimes I look at the patterns, I always think about eliminating seams/ combind seams. This pattern (burda 11/2007/126) is perfect for making bath robe, don't you think?

Great job! I love the belt. Is it a separate piece or is it sewn to the jacket?

jaeng said...
Simpleliving, I just add the link of how to make an obi belt. It's a seperated piece, not sewn into the jacket.
