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.
