Burda wof 02-2009-115

I have been in the process of sewing two jackets lately, one through a sewing class - up to the lining & all going well - will post more on that one later. The other jacket I have been working on is Burda wof 02-2009-115.
I am using very similarly coloured fabrics. My fabric is a sage green linen pique purchased from Gorgeous fabrics.
Well - after my Easter visitors have left I have finally found enough time to finish and wear it ...Yay!

Lots of pictures as I don't have a lot to say. It is the sewing course for the month so the instructions were pretty good. I was scratching my head a bit on the collar but slept on it and it came together the next day...

Here are some of the details - turn-up...

Some of these photos were taken after wearing it out to the movies so excuse the creases (it is a linen after all).
Conclusion- I really like this little jacket. It is easy to wear, a good weight for what I need in our climate, goes well with jeans and a great substitute for the cardigan I seem to wear to much! The linen pique fabric is stiff but softening up over time so I think it's wearability will improve with a few more washes and wears!

Happy Easter!


  1. Very pretty! I really love the pockets, and your hong kong finish is so nice!

  2. I've been thinking about this one too - a perfect layering piece. Yours turned out great.

  3. Wonderful jacket. Great fit and the style suits you very well.

  4. Nicely done - the HK finish looks beatiful and so do you wearing it!

  5. Great jacket Sue, I had forgotten about this pattern already. It looks like you will get lots of wear out of it, perfect smart casual. Lovely job! Natasha

  6. Sue, the jacket looks even better in real life! The colour and fit are great, and it looks fab with your chocolate linen pants - well done!

  7. The jacket looks great on the outside and the inside!


Love to hear what you think...
