Vintage-Y Jacket

IMG_1515

Sometimes it’s fun to do a nice tailoring project. I’ve been fairly busy for the past few weeks with Thanksgiving, but this week I got to work on some sewing! I love this fabric. I bought it at Elliott Berman Textiles in NYC during the Patternreview party a month or so ago.

The pattern is from the new Burdastyle Vintage magazine. I really like this magazine and I’m glad I ordered it. If you think you would like this magazine, you definitely would. There are a lot of really interesting patterns, and, if this jacket pattern is any indication, they are very well-drafted. Also, the pattern sheet is easier to trace than a typical Burdastyle magazine.

the pattern calls for a facing, but since the fabric is very bulky, I thought it would be better to line to the edge.

I added pockets.  They're sort of welt pockets, but more minimal.

    That’s a great-looking fabric and the style really makes the most of it. What’s the fiber content? It looks really cozy!

      Thanks! I’m not exactly sure of the fiber content, but I know it is a wool blend.

    I, too, bought that issue! (And I’m certainly not a vintage girl…) But I LOOOOVE that jacket, Claudine! What an amazing fabric you found and the lining is perfection (though maybe that’s just a contrast fabric, but I’m thinking maybe you lined to the edge.)

    It’s always fun to work on a little tailoring project 😉 It’s a beautiful make – I love your buttonholes! Using little clear buttons on the reverse side has become a favourite thing of mine – it makes them so sturdy!

    Beautiful jacket! The fabric would have come home with me too, it’s gorgeous. Lovely work and I like the edge to edge lining.

    You always find the most interesting fabrics! I love EB but my eyes are glazed over when I’m there. Clearly, you have better “fabric focus” than me. This is just beautiful.

    […] but i find it helpful to blame ginger for my current, WIP-ified predicament. as you know by now, we settled on the gerard coat by republique du chiffon, which really has a great, on-trend silhouette and that je-n’est-sais-quoi that so many of the cute europrean patterns have. ginger soon zoomed in on the gorgeous pink boucle (with, i confess, some gentle persuasion on my part) and i immediately went for a dyed mohair number from elliott berman textiles that you may have spotted already expertly deployed by rolling in cloth.
