{Burda Pattern Jacket - My Sewing Creation}

For the St. Patrick's Festival of course one has to wear some GREEN. This year I did wear my self sewn  jacket from a nice Italian cotton piqué from Het Stoffenhuis, B. Veldhuis in Venlo/Netherlands. For the design I used a German Burda pattern; my all time favorite for excellent fit. Jacket has a one-button closure and a lapel. My notions I always get from Britex Fabrics in San Francisco. Just click the hyperlink and yes, they also do ship.
This jacket was a lot easier to sew; no lining!
Worn with an Escada jeans and Escada sleeveless rayon top.

My feisty Tiggy-Tiger girl liked it too...
Is green also a color in your wardrobe?

    Ich wünsche dir viel Freude damit. Liebe Grüße, Ilse

  10. Liebe Mariette,


    Sonnige Grüße


  11. What a nice jacket. Hmmm my wardrobe would have had a real review of it is very messy in terms of both color and style but green, I have nothing. What a cute cat * smile * Sudden little warning. Have a nice day.


  12. Wow!! Che bel colore,qui si dice che è il colore della speranza....
    Io uso molto il verde militare!!
    Ti auguro una buona giornata!!

  13. Hi Mariette, I'm not surprised your vast amount of knowledge in many areas, and in the area of fashion being consulting in these arts', you did this great piece of clothing as appropriate. Perfect fit, right colors and look profecional termination! With this creation you look lovely! I congratulate you once again! hugs! Rose M.

  14. Lekker vrolijke kleurtjes, voor een jasje! Dat past dan wel bij heel veel dingen natuurlijk!

    Het ziet er super netjes uit hoor! Mooi gemaakt!!

    Liefs van je nichtje ♥

  15. Hi Mariette,
    Your jacket is beautiful and I love the cotton pique fabric. You are so pretty and look divine. Growing up my sister and I sewed and designed most of our dresses. She has continued to sew and makes all her suit jackets and so she always has the perfect fit for her body type. That is what I like the best about sewing our own clothes, is getting the "right fit". Your sewing talent is amazing.
    I have been to Britex many times for fabric. I made my daughters senior ball gown in a beautiful green silk I purchased from Britex. Britex is like a candy store you want to have one of everything.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  16. Lieve Mariette
    Wat een mooi jasje heeft U gemaakt,schitterend mooi en de kleur staat U ook goed.
    Lieve groetjes Carine

  17. You are my kind of gal - clothes wise - otherwise you are taller and thinner. lol I just now got to read your comment. Thank you for following me and I am following you. Two hours away - maybe we can meet some day!

  18. Hallo Mariette,

    ein klasse Kostüm und die Farben stehen Dir ausgezeichnet.

    Vielen Dank für Deinen lieben Kommentar :)! Aber sieben Sprachen! Da habe ich mich unnötig angestrengt ;) Dir etwas in Englisch zu sagen :). Welche Sprachen sprichst Du?

    Die Folgen des Tornados sind somit folgenschwer - wobei man immer sehen muss, dass man auf der anderen Seite doch Glück gehabt hat. Vielleicht machst Du ein Bild von dem Garten, wie ihr es nun gestaltet habt?

    Einen lieben Gruß von Senna

  19. Liebe Mariette,
    eine wunderschöne Kombination, Zumal "Grün" in diessem Jahre die Modefarbe ist.
    Liebe Grüße

  20. Cara Mariette, sei veramente molto brava a cucire e questa tonalità di verde è molto bella..ho un pullover della stessa tinta! Adoro questo colore ma non mi dona molto! Un abbraccio grande, Anna

  21. Dear Mariette,
    What a beautiful jacket :) it's adorable and suites you perfectly. Have a lovely day!


  22. Het ziet er prachtig uit en je straalt helemaal.
    Lieve groet,

  23. Dearest Mariette, your jacket looks marvelous, the fit , the colour - perfect!! What a gift to be able to create your own garments! ... Tiggy-Tiger looks quite happy in his mama's arms!!

    I happy to share that the temps have been around 25 - 28 Celsius here ... which is unheard of for this time of the year. But we are enjoying getting out in the gardens and getting a head start on the clean up after winter!! Wishing you both wonderful temps and sunny skies.. love and hugs, C (HHL)

  24. Hej, liebe Mariette, dein "self sewn jacket" ist WUNDERSCHÖN! Leider kann ich gar nicht nähen... das wäre praktisch, um meine Garderobe mit den perfekt passenden Stücken aufzupeppen.
    Ich selbst habe auch einige grüne Kleidungsstücke in meinem Schrank, denn die Farbe passt gut zu meinen grünlichen Augen, den herbstroten Haaren und meinem Sommersprossen-Teint. Leider finde ich nicht oft genug Kleidungsstücke im "richtigen" Grünton (der bei mir besser ins Gelbliche oder Bräunliche geht (und nicht ins Bläuliche). Dein Shirt, das du unter der Jacke trägst, wäre z.B. so ein "Idealpartner" für mich ;o)
    Und dein Kätzchen, das würde ebenfalls gut zu mir passen :o))
    Ich schicke dir liebste Frühlingsgrüße (und nachträgliche St-Patricks-Day-Grüße) aus Österreich!
    Herzlichst Traude

  25. Dearest Mariette.
    I like change your new time for happy
    you feel all changed time.
    Happy day for every day.
    I will like to my news for change in one started that before I would like to change one from my new post.
    Love thinking to you Michiko

  26. Hi Mariette, You look so beautiful in your pretty green and floral. Love the jacket, your skills are amazing.
    Dear lady, you can do anything.
    Blessings, Ginger

  27. Erg mooi geworden, je jasje! Wat goed dat jij zo goed kan naaien! En zelfs nog anderen ermee wilt helpen!
    Fijne dag!

  28. You are a talented woman Mariette! I can hardly sew on a button ~ haha! And look at sweet kitty ~ love her fancy stripes! :)

    I have lots of green in my wardrobe. It is one of my favorite colors. :)

    xo Catherine

  29. Liebe Mariette,
    ich weiß garnicht, was ich mehr bewundern soll, dein selbst (perfekt) genähtes Jäckchen, deine tolle Figur oder den süßen Stubentiger. Du bist wirklich eine vielseitig talentierte Frau mit gutem Geschmack.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  30. Hi Mariette! what a surprise!!your green jacket is fantastic indeed and fits you perfectly.Nice and springful designs.... And you look so beautiful. Compliments.

  31. Liebe Mariette,
    figurmäßig kannst Du es auch mit mancher 20jährigen aufnehmen! Ich bin begeistert, wenn ich sehe, daß es auch in unserem Alter oder noch älter Frauen gibt, die etwas auf sich halten und nicht wahllos die Nahrungsmittel in sich reinschaufeln. Allerdings gibt es auch Stoffwechselstörungen, die so etwas bewirken können.
    Das Grün steht Dir ganz vorzüglich!

    Liebe Grüße

  32. Ich lese gerade noch von Deiner Frage ... also ich glaube, Grün habe ich nicht im Kleiderschrank. Steht mir nicht so. Ich liebe Rot bei Kleidung oder auch mal Blau, die Hauptfarbe ist bei mir jedoch schon seit Jahren Schwarz, weil es mir vorzüglich steht. Das kombiniere ich gern mit Gold oder Silber, Weiss und eben Rottönen. Daran wird sich wohl auch nicht grundlegend etwas ändern. Schwarz ist für mich einfach praktisch, da es zu allem paßt und man nicht unnötig viel Klamotten braucht.
    Und es schaut immer gut aus.
    Reinweiss gibt es bei mir nur mal im Hochsommer, wenn es sehr heiss ist. Von zu bunt bin ich, was mich persönlich betrifft, kein allzu großer Freund.

    Das Tigerchen ist ja wunderschön! Hat es auch grüne Augen? :-)

    Alles Liebe nochmal

  33. Wow the colour really suits you.

    The words "Tres belle" spring to mind....

    A tres bientot, Leeann x

  34. Hallo Mariette, wat leuk om je te ontmoeten! Bedankt voor je compliment over mijn schilderijen, ik wil het mijn werk van maken en probeer een beetje bekendheid te krijgen. Ben jij dat op de foto met die mooie groene kleding? Wat een mooi en stralend vrouw! Kom jij uit Nederland en woon je nu in America? Liefs Barbara met gezamelijke vrindien Loredana.

  35. Dear Mariette thanks for the visit and for the comment to Elna's post!!!Hope to stay in touch!!Your figure looks flawless!!!And the jacket very springish!!!Keep in touch!!

  36. Dear Mariette
    I love the green colour and your Jacket is wonderful !You bring us the spring !Thanks for this !

  37. You look beautiful Mariette! The jacket and jean go well together. Lovely pattern and colour!
