Jacket with standing collar.

I have been wanting to make a waist length jacket for a while now. In my wardrobe I have three trench coat sized jackets and a couple of cardigans. I need something in between to get me through the changing season. Burda Style have released their latest magazine patterns online and I have fallen in love with the blue jacket on the bottom right.

We are going into Spring at the moment here in Sydney so I would have to pick the jacket fabric carefully... I think a trip to Tessuti Fabrics is in order!

  1. I love that second jacket, the fitted one! A jacket seems so much more complicated to make, though. I am going to be SO IMPRESSED if you can pull this off! Not that I haven't been impressed with your clothesmaking already - I am!

  2. Thanks Erin! I hope to impress you my dear! Just waiting to find the perfect blue fabric... or camel colour? or olive green?... oh dear! I may have to make three...! :-) Sam xox
