This is my favorite jacket in the last couple of months. You have probably seen me wearing it to Sidra’s elementary school graduation here.

The pattern is Wide Sleeve Lapel Jacket 02/2015 #122 from Burdastyle. The jacket has boxy shape with wide straight sleeves, wide lapel, and wide back pleats. It is an unlined jacket with no closure so it’s perfect for when the weather is not too cold. The jacket reminds me of my old jacket that I made in 2010. I lost it during a visit to IKEA! So sad.

The fabric is wool in this undescribable color. Recently I have been trying to use more fabric in solid colors instead of print so they can be mixed and matched more easily. But I’m still trying to find out which colors work best for me.

I also made a simple top with another Burdastyle pattern, Retro Top 07/2013 #130. It is a very simple top with bust dart and loop closure in the back. Not my favorite top though. When I wore it, the neckline was a bit too high so I decided to cut it lower. The new neckline is a bit wavy, maybe because the fabric is already stretched out. The fabric is double gauze cotton.

As usual for Burdastyle patterns, I printed them at 92% and cut size 38. This is my favorite way now because the result is quite perfect for my petite body and I don’t have to make any alterations.

It is getting warmer everyday so it looks like I can’t wear my favorite little jacket anymore!

    Love this jacket! Perfect shape and size.

    Amazing how good yours looks and how not good the Burda model’s looks. The key feature is that back vent width. Very tempting to buy! How would you rate this on a scale of difficulty for someone who hasn’t made coats yet (advanced beginner)?

    • Thank you! This is a relatively easy jaket as it has no lining and there’s no shaping or interfaced part on the body. If you’re an advanced beginner I7m sure you can handle this 🙂

  • Your coat is gorgeous! I’m going to look at the pattern right now! Lynne
