A new feature on my blog this year is a “garment a month”. Each month I will sew a garment and give a bit more details on construction. I have no specific plans on which garments will be featured. I would be interested to hear what garments or construction you would like to see!
The garment for this month is from the January issue of Burda magazine, jacket 113. I was immediately attracted to this pattern when I saw the first previews of the January issue.
It’s shown in a tweed fabric, but I will be making it in a linen, as that’s a fabric I have at hand in a beautiful petrol colour.
The first two photos above are from the Burda website. The last one is the fba I did on the front. After doing the fba and taping the pieces on the cutting board, I’ve traced the two pattern pieces again. The fba (full bust adjustment) for a princess seam can be found in the book Fit for real people (Palmer/Pletch) and of course tutorials on the internet, just not on my site at the moment.
Hope to do the cutting tonight.
Let me know what you think of a series like this. I’m looking forward to hearing opinions!
To finish this post a photo of a beautiful sky reflected in the water, taken during a walk a few days ago. A very Dutch picture.
