This slimming jacket really works and makes you look a size less. This is mainly because of the shape and the lines of the jacket, which are piping-trims. But it is also because it is made of fabric which stretch.
And believe it or not: it is made of fabric leftovers!
This chic jacket is a really treasure. The piping, the model and the stretch fabric also ensure that this jacket looks 'slimming'.
La Mia Boutique sewing patterns
La Mia Boutique is an Italian designer-brand. You can read all about it on this button. But it is in The Dutch Language. We are sorry for that. Hopefully you can read it with translations.
The Orginal jacket:
Also in the Dutch language: the Sewing instructions on the BERNINA BLOG. But that should nog be a problem because the pictures are telling the story.
It is not a difficult job to make the jacket, but please notice:
1. The sizes are in Italian clothing sizes!
2. You really need STRETCH fabrics.
And if you work with fabric leftovers: be sure these are the same fabrics regarding to the STRETCH in it. The colors should match as well, but that's less important.
The sewing pattern from La Mia Boutique offers a striking 'slim fit' jacket.
It is ideal if you want to use your fabrics leftovers.
Pay special attention to the SIZE, which is different from the European sizes.
And PLEASE NOTE that you choose fabric with a stretch content.
The jacket is very pleasant to wear and is great for summer with a bare neck or for autumn with a blouse or shirt underneath.
