Made It Myself Monday: This Jacket May Be Too Graphic For Sensitive Viewers

Well, at the beginning of spring I picked up a Burda Magazine and this is the third thing I have made from it's pages. I really had sort of thought the graphic wouldn't look quite this large, translated to clothing, but here you go!




I bought the canvas fabric at Ikea and really tried to stay on top of the designs as I cut. Placing, changing and hoping the shapes would still be nice with the darts and all.
The jacket was pretty easy to make but a little boxy ( So far I have found all their patterns a little on the boxy side...) but I altered it by adding a belt, and curving the front corners at the bottom, to match some of the shapes in the print.


It isn't the jacket I would pick for a wallflower shy day... But I guess I'm not really that type of girl anyhow.

Boldly Going Pretty Much Everywhere,
Betty

thanks for the jacket love ebveryone..

Maria: HAHHa.. well that was just a side effect of trying hard not to have the HEARTS land there. Instead I have a stylized tulip thing... At least I don't have a lot to check out in that vicinity... ;)

great print, great jacket! not boxy at all, well done. i'm not a fan of boxy, it makes me look dumpy and huge, i'm glad the eighties are over, there's no going back to boxy clothes for me!
