I knew I wanted to pair floral with something a little edgy, so I bought the Burda Moto Jacket pattern, naively thinking it wouldn’t be as complicated as it looked.
It was complicated, and then some. By the end of sewing this thing I was feeling like rather than me paying them for the pattern, they should pay me for sewing it, ha! Just kidding…a little ;).
But seriously, this jacket was laborious. There are 13 pattern pieces for the outer, and then you have 8 for the lining. Oh my word this thing was difficult, mostly because you get one page of instructions.
I had read that Burda patterns were hard to understand, and boy were those people right. But the designs—they are amazing! So I don’t know that I’m going to be sewing any jackets this intense anytime in the near future, but I do love how amazing the design is. Hard work but worth it.
I think that the hard work paid off. I seriously love how this jacket turned out.
The seaming and detail on this thing is incredible!
And that’s what I came up with for the Floral Frenzy challenge!

And please excuse my awful hair style. It has been so windy and rainy this last week and both times I attempted pictures it was raining and blowing like crazy. I left the house looking much more polished ;).
And special thanks to my 10 year old son who took the pictures both this week and last :). He’s got a knack for photography, I think!
