Burda Style Fall 2015 jacket #101
Jackie models her lovely Burda double-breasted jacket made from a Chanel-like mixed fiber fabric from AAF. A few modifications were made to the pattern starting with eliminating both the back pleat and the band in front. With a clever placement of her pieces on a rather small amount of fabric, she managed to place her front edge on a fringed selvage. Additional strips of selvage edges were scavenged and used to beef up the front edge and neckline. We applaud you, Jackie, for ekeing out such a beauty from such a small piece of fabric. And your gloves are the perfect complement!
