I would recommend a heavier fabric for this jacket. It needs some structure to hold up the neckline and keep it on your shoulders. A good simple unlined cropped jacket for those who know how to sew and don't require instructions!
Pattern: Burda 5/2011 Three-quarter sleeve Jacket #121
Fabric: Metallic blend fabric from Tessuti Melbourne
Alterations: skipped the front bands and snap closures (not an intentional alteration but it worked), also stiched the welt pockets closed
I wouldn't mind making this again in a suitable fabric for work to avoid wearing cardigans all the time.
Can you see the two unfinished items under the jacket? One is the bodice of a dress for my party next weekend and the other is a black ponti knit pencil skirt. Fingers crossed I can finish the party dress in time!!
