Jacket Sew Along - Burda

My skirts are on hold temporarily, but along came the Burda Plaid Jacket Sew Along  and I am now I am heading in that direction.  I decided to make my jacket from a solid color anti-pill fleece, the solid color was on sale at Jo-Ann at 50% off.  The instructions called for 3.4 yards of material which seems like a lot so I will see how much I have left over for another project.

After machine washing and drying my fabric, tonight I pinned the first 3 pattern pieces to my fabric.  I decided to joined the sew along somewhere around week 2 and week 3. This will be a first for me in two ways, my first Jacket and the first time using a Burda PDF pattern it was really interesting printing it out and taping it together, it was a giant puzzle, lucky I love puzzles.

I started with building the stand for the barrel on a Sunday. I used concrete 12in x 12in stepping stone pavers and 4in x 8in pavers, I created a pattern and stack them, I did use pieces of slate to level the barrel. I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.


I dd not have enough pavers on …
