Burda 6705 is a sewing pattern for a short, fitted jacket and a knee-length skirt. The sewing pattern is ideal for a beautiful winter suit! But you can also transform the suit into an festive suit for a special occasion or the holidays.
Burda's sewing pattern is a suit, with princess lines and two-piece sleeves. It is ideal for Bouclé, wool or wool-mix fabrics. It is not specifically a Chanel-style jacket, but we have ad some Chanel-details. The jacket closes with a zipper, something that you rarely see in the couture world or at the fashion house Chanel. But despite the zipper you can still turn it into a beautiful Chanel-style jacket by adding edges and emphasizing the pockets.
The fabrics recommended for this sewing pattern are: Lightweight Wool, Tweed and Bouclé. You will also need a long zipper, shoulder pads and lining fabric.
The recommended sewing level for this sewing pattern is: medium. So it means that you need some sewing experience to make this suit. This is mainly because of the zipper tidy and the fact that you work with smaller pieces of fabric. As mentioned, the sewing pattern has princess lines and the sleeves consist of two parts.
Even more fabric options: the suit would also be very nice made with jacquard or brocade fabrics. Opt for luxurious fabrics and a matching zipper. The jacket and skirt immediately have the perfect look for the holidays!
Burda 6705 is a great sewing pattern for a timelessly chic jacket and skirt. If you can adjust the cup size, if necessary, the outfit is very flattering and fits perfectly. You can also vary with many types of fabrics and make something really festive!
