60′s Inspired Sheath and Jacket

Hi! I just finished Burda 8995. It’s a sweet sixties inspired sheath dress with a shortie jacket top. This pattern is no longer in print, but it is not old. This was a great pattern to work with, and both the dress and the jacket were easy to make.

The cotton barkcloth fabric heightens the sixties feel. For all the details please feel free to stop by my blog for more information!

Love the pattern and fabric print. To me it says individualistic person.
