Peplum Jacket: Burberry Inspired

This fabulous Peplum Jacket was made for the Pretty Girls Sew January-February Sew-Along. I love everything about it, but the funny thing is that I almost put it aside and not finish it. It was taking me forever to make because I didn't really have the time. Also, I like instant gratification, I like to start and finish whatever I'm making quickly and move on to the next thing. I wasn't getting that from this garment, so I kept setting it aside and making other things.

The Inspiration:

First, I would like to say that I am so glad I know how to sew... The idea to mix these 2 fabrics together came from a Burberry Peplum Crop Jacket I saw on Instagram a few months ago. I researched it and found out that it was sold for $2,672 (Here) and $2,495 (Here). Since there's no way I'm paying that much for a Jacket, I save the picture in the "Design Inspiration" album on my phone.

My Version:

Pattern Review (V8866)

Description: Loose-fitting, lined jacket has collar, shoulder pads, waist tucks, welts, self-lined flounce, sleeves with stitched hem and belt.

Fabric Used: All the fabric used were from (first time). I used Beige Solid Suiting and Fine Wool Houndstooth Tweed in Tan for the Jacket. And used Maroon Silk Crepe de Chine for the lining.

Pattern Sizing: I cut out a size 8.. I could have taken it in a few more inches, but it's supposed to be a loose-fitting jacket so I left it a little loose. 

Were the Instructions easy to follow? They probably are, but I read it wrong when it came to cutting the flounce. There was a small circle on each flounce pattern that was suppose to be stitching lines, but I ended up making it a cutting line. But other than that, The instructions were straight forward.

Likes or Dislikes about the Pattern: I like the design a lot because I'm a big fan of peplums and flounces. No dislikes.

Pattern Alterations or Design Changes made: No big Alterations or Changes. Since I cut out the flounce where I wasn't supposed to, I had to gather it at the waist. But it was okay because it gave the flounce a little bit more volume. I also added belt loops on the side seams.

Would you Sew it again? Probably Not.  

Shout out to The Man at for taking my pictures. xo
