Man’s jacket Burda 8135

It will be a long project… at this moment I have finished a muslin and forced my DH to have the first very quick fit. Since few years I am planning to make him a jacket, well he requested one. I have bought this Burda 8135 man’s jacket pattern long ago – for extra tall figure. I already know I will have to make few adjustments, e.g. shorten the sleeves, ‘full tummy’ adjustment.

A year ago I have bought the eco canvas from bamboo and linen in red. For lining I will use cotton batiste or this nice red cotton fabric in shells Glimlach

I had an old cotton curtain which I decided to use for this muslin. I put the Burda wax paper under the fabric – I missed at this moment the large wax paper Susan Khalje used in Craftsy Online Couture Dress Class

and trace all pattern pieces. No seam allowances were added so I could just trace it all directly without wasting time to marking the seam allowances first.

I cut out the first part of the pattern – I was tracing single layer

– and then I traced other site. This method used/advised Susan Khalje and I have to say I like it – it works very well for muslin. I have this tracing wheel from my DH mother – it is so useful – I am very happy I have got it together with her other craft accessories.

After all was ready I sew all pieces around on my sewing machine with seam length 4.5 mm.

  1. Oh kitty! They are so very good at the sprawl aren’t they?

    BTW what did you mean when you cut out the first part of the pattern and then traced the other side? I’m always keen to learn new ways of doing things …

    Hi Beata – I think Meisje knows just what a muslin is for 🙂 I do hope DH stands still long enough for his fittings.
