The Sew Weekly), and have been anxiously awaiting my own copy. So I was really excited to see the big box with my name on it! I haven't had a chance to read through the entire thing yet, but I really do like the look of the three patterns I hadn't seen yet! (I only saw the bag and coat, since those were the ones they chose for my sketch submissions.) And you can bet I'll be reading this one cover to cover.
The other thing I was really excited to get back in the mail was my jacket! If you have the book, you can see it on the bottom right-hand corner of page 168. But I thought it would be fun to show some of the details that didn't make it into the book. (I hope that's ok, BurdaStyle! I know I'm about a year behind on actually posting my projects to your site, but I promise I'll start catching up on that soon!)
I really like the way the sleeve pleats turned out. I added a couple extra to distribute the fullness, because the suedecloth was NOT a gather-friendly fabric. It's a little hard to see in both here and the book, but there's actually a self-fabric trim over the princess seam-- two parallel bias-type strips. And of course, fabric-covered buttons!
Thanks again for allowing me to be a part of this, BurdaStyle--it was truly an honor!
