Pattern Description:
'This jacket is something that suits all occasions: A fitted casual jacket with hood that opens up and turns into an XXL collar. The jacket goes with pretty much everything and looks super great in this trendy, mustard yellow fabric.'
Pattern Sizing:
Burda sizes 36-44. I made size 38.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were ok. I got completely confused in a couple of places but it was easy enough to work out what to do by looking at the picture in the magazine or website.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The pattern is a cute and modern style and has a few little details that make it stand out. It goes together well and is fairly easy to make.
Fabric Used:
Double brushed flannel poly rayon. No, I'd never heard of it either, but when I saw it I had to have it!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The fabric I chose was not non-fray fabric as I'd first thought so I had to make the jacket without the exposed seams. I also had to bind all the edges, that were designed to be raw, with satin ribbon. I ended up liking the jacket better with these changes so I'm glad the fabric frayed!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I don't know that I need another jacket like this, but I would certainly recommend it to others.
This jacket is a fun style and I love the soft and cosy look and feel of this lovely fabric. The bright colour completes the happy vibe. I enjoyed making this as it's not really difficult. However, I took lots of extra time to match the seam lines, get the zips right and make the ribbon trim as perfect as possible. Fun and rewarding times only a sewing nerd would understand!
