how to sew a jacket: pattern and cutting

Heyhey,

happy new year! I hope you all have a wonderful new year, with lots of creativity, crafting and sewing!

Thanks to the holidays I only got to start at the winning pattern of burda 01/15:

I decided to do a 2 color version, so something in between the uni-color and the 3 color version in the magazine. Then I started copying the pattern pieces out of the pattern-sheets, there are 15 parts, on 2 different pattern sheets, so it took a lot longer then I thought.

DSCF6632the first 6 pattern parts, with added seam allowance, I added 2cm to all hems, but 5cm to the sleeve hems, since most patterns have to short sleeves for my arms

DSCF6634the next 7 parts

DSCF6635and the last 2

DSCF6636I cut the front and back-parts and the front-facing out of a dark brown fabric

DSCF6637and the sleeve-parts, side-part, shoulder-and-neck-parts, and the back-facing out of an orange fabric

DSCF6638I know its only 13 parts, 2 are lining pattern-parts, I will cut the lining later, when the jacket is almost finished, so I have a better feeling for what I have to consider.

Well I hope this was helpful for you, let me know if you have any questions! Next steps will be uploaded next week.

keep sewing and smiling

  1. eek! This is so exciting! I love this pattern =) I am looking forward to following along. Is the white stuff an interlining? It looks quilted a little?

    • no, its paper-table-cloth, I use it for my patterns, because its a soft paper, you can buy it at 1m wide and its also very cheap.
      But I will use some interlining, since my brown fabric is thicker then the orange one, I will try and even out that difference.

      • I dont remember if it was my idea, or if I saw somebody else use paper-table-cloth, but its what I use for quite some years now. I used to take packing-paper but that was to stiff, so my fabric always got stretched …
