This is the first time I’ve purchased wool and made a large warm, winter jacket! This wool jacket by BurdaStyle is the perfect Parka Jacket and it’s soooo warm. Almost too warm to wear for our Brisbane winters but hey, it might be great for travelling!
Description: This variegated wool jacket can function as a cozy cardigan or as a jacket for days that aren’t so cold.
Pattern: Wool Jacket101 |Burda Style 01/20
Fabric: Wool fabric and lining from Spotlight
This is the perfect long length throw over jacket, including pockets and a wide collar. I extended the sleeves to roll back the cuffs to show the lining colour fabric. I love the drop shoulders, it looks like a designer parka.
Oh, and did I mention I made it reversible? Now I can wear this as a plain light brown colour jacket with the checks as the feature instead.
Because of the extra length of the sleeves I can just pull back the cuffs to show the lining colour. I loved making it reversible because now I have two different jackets to choose from!
I seriously can’t decide which one I like the most! Anthony also loves it so much he wants me to make him a male version if we go travelling to the snow! I just have to stop wearing it as my dressing gown because now it’s covered in pug hair from the pugs being so snugly this winter.
Have you made something this year during lock down that you hadn’t tried before? I’m so excited to be ticking off a jacket pattern and one I absolutely loved making!
xx Happy sewing! xx
