That was all I needed to search through the archives, trace it off and cut out my fabric.
This is style 115 from the 02/2009 issue. Almost vintage!
I made this I in a size 44 and I think the fit is just fine.
(early morning photography = odd light )
Of course getting fit right in a boxy style is really only about the shoulders. The dart could be a touch too low and no doubt there are other things that you can see if you look at it very critically. But it’s an unlined and not very structured crumpled linen jacket. The fit is fine!
I used a coated linen that was a souvenir from Barcelona. And because this was such a fabulous fabric I took a little bit extra care.
Hong Kong seam treatments on the sleeves, shoulders and facings.
That’s fusible interfacing on the bias edges of the raglan sleeve seams. I used quite a bit of interfacing in this project, even in the hem (hoping this will stop it rolling up after sitting. So far it’s working!)
Flat felled seams through the main body of the jacket and top stitching.
Precision sewing. This is the shoulder. Ask me about unpicking and lots of pins.
Lots of top stitching. Did I say that already? And extra nice buttons
I particularly like these pockets. They were fun to construct and they are delightfully capacious.
I’m very pleased with this jacket. It’s the perfect smart casual jacket for cooler summer evenings.
I need to reacquaint myself with the rest of my old Burda magazines. Who knows what other treasures lie therein?
