runway reality look 3 double breasted jacket



Everyone needs a Double Breasted Satin Jacket in their life! I find this week’s Look Book collaboration with BurdaStyle to be bold, powerful and sexy! Download the BurdaStyle Look Book PDF here for step by step instructions for this look.

Blurring masculine and feminine boundaries has become a more common fashion trend. The fashion world is full of revolutionaries that reflect societal, political, economic and cultural changes. With women being so free to experiment with androgynous trends, it says a lot about our place in society today.

This double breasted project is a great example of how classic menswear can be redefined by today’s modern woman.

All you’ll need for this look besides the usual thread and tools, is satin fabric, woven fusible interfacing for the collar & shoulder pads (optional). Denise chose to leave this jacket unlined and used our Brother 3034D Serger and Brother NQ1300PRW combination sewing and quilting machine to put this look together!

She made no modifications to the Burdastyle Double Breasted Jacket pattern. She cut the jacket to her size, European 36, and a 5/8” seam allowance was added to all edges of the pattern.

This jacket is so basic yet refined. It would easily lend itself for workday to the evening. Brother would love to hear how you feel about this look. Do you adhere to only classic feminine styles or do you push the boundaries of your personal style with a twist?
