This is the latest pattern that I am making. I am making the longer jacket in the bottom right hand of the patter – the longer length. You can see the off-white fabric that I have cut out. The striped bias binding is some that I made a while ago that I used as binding on a slipcover for a loveseat that I designed and made. I had A LOT of extra binding so this is what I am going to use.
This is my progress. I really like this pattern. When I purchased this pattern and started making it I had some reservations about Burda because I had tried a Burda pattern before and was not entirely please with it. This jacket/coat pattern really appealed to me so I decided to give Burda another try. This is such a great pattern. The instructions are clear and simple and the style is spot on. I must say that I have not followed the instructions completely. I have made some changes and have added my own touches. I will show you when I have the jacket completed.
At this moment I must go and take the collar off because I sewed it on upside down. That is what I get for not following instructions don’t I? I know better. I did think that I had sewn it on correctly but soon found out how wrong I was.
