BurdaStyle 08/2017 Faux Suede Jacket

Buckle up!  Lots of photos today.

This is the "Faux Suede Jacket" from the August 2017 issue of BurdaStyle Magazine.  You can download it from the website now, though.  I saw this jacket on a blog's review of the magazine and I got a wee bit obsessed... so much so that I ordered the magazine from England (very reasonable price and shipping) and then traced and graded down 3 sizes since this is a "plus" pattern.  So worth it.


The fabric is a faux suede from Sawyer Brook.  The color is a dark olive drab that occasionally reads a little brown.It was a dream to sew and shows the top-stitching beautifully.  Lining, zippers, snaps, and shoulder pads are all from JoAnn Fabrics.


Even the back has nice seaming details.




Here are some details shots.










I am so pleased with how this turned out.  I have nothing like it in my wardrobe.  It's the perfect fall jacket.

    1. So much work and so worth it! I am loving the fall, but I definitely have to remember not to complain of the cold to my husband since I campaigned hard for the move. Ha!

    1. Thank you! The grading gave me some nerves, because of course I didn't make a muslin, but all turned out ok.
