BurdaStyle Wool Boucle Jacket

This is the second BurdaStyle jacket I’ve made this winter with some beautiful brown checked wool fabric I purchased from Spotlight. I made the outside with the patterned wool and the inside with the plain cream colour, which is also the fabric combination I used to create my long Wool Parka Jacket.

Pattern Information

Description: Oversized and rounded collar flatters the decolleté and shoulders, while patch pockets and a double row of silver buttons are refined finishing details.
Pattern: BurdaStyle Boucle Jacket 114 02/19
Fabric: Wool from Spotlight

What did you like/dislike about this pattern?

I found the collar on this one to be a little tricky stitching it with the lining but I persisted and finally got it sitting okay. I have to say the BurdaStyle patterns aren’t great if you’re a beginner jacket maker like myself. I think a few more picture diagrams would have helped.

I also found the sleeves to be quite short so I ended up creating a large cuff which I felt still suited this jacket. The fabric being quite thick also sits nicely and is very warm and snug. I highly recommend this wool fabric for this jacket pattern.

I also love the front features on this jacket including the double layer collar, front pockets and four buttons. Overall I’m really thrilled with the fabric, design and the fact that I achieved another sewing goal! I’m looking forward to wearing this one out with some cute brown boots!

While I was looking online I also found this jacket (pictured below) on The Iconic for $109. It’s very similar in colour but mine is lined with wool and still cost me less than half that price! What a great way to save money!

I hope you’re all enjoying your winter or summer sewing projects, depending on where you are in the world. Stay safe!
