Red Bouclé Outfit

by Pauline Alice
Hello everyone,
I have taken some pictures this week-end of the red bouclé outfit I told you about last month (remember, I showed you the jacket).


I am not usually one to follow the fashion trends as I normally have a retro/vintage style (quite the opposite of most of the modern trends, even if sometimes some designers got inspired by the past ( I could write an entire post about my favourite designers, well I guess I will)). But the recent trend of coordinated outfit was very nice and I really like the idea. This was the board I made, remember:


I wanted a short and fitted jacket with 3/4 sleeves, in a very simple shape (no collar, no pocket) to make the beaded trim and the bright colour the most important features. I chose a pattern from Burda, jacket 109 from issue 03/2012, a pattern I already made for my mother as a Christmas present. I changed it quite a bit in order to get it more fitted: took the seams in, increase the curve of the princess seams, fitted the sleeves…
The same happened for the skirt: a clean shape to let the fabric and the trim shine. The pattern is the same one I made for my bow skirt, minus the pockets (and the bow of course!).
I hope your having a nice summer (here in Valencia it’s great, I was frying in the sun with the jacket while taking the pictures…) and I wish you a nice week!

You look great, Madamoiselle Coco ^.^

Thanks so much! You're right, there's a Chanel feeling in this jacket and skirt suit… If only that would redict a similar career…

Just love that colour, with the trim feature – great outfit indeed!

Pauline Guillet 22 July, 2013 - 12:37 pm

Thank you Judith! I love the fabric colour (but I fear it's making my skin look even whiter: look at my legs, it's like a ghost!)

Es súper bonita y sencilla. Me encanta. La blusa también es preciosa, la has hecho tú también? Besos!

¡Gracias Alicia! Compré la blusa en Paris hace unos años cuando vivía allí. Todavía me queda ropa comprada en mi armario 🙂

Que bonito!! me encanta el conjunto y la tela que has escojido!! yo tambien quería hacerme una chaqueta de ese tipo y no encontraba patrón. Esa revista no la tengo, espero que pronto pongan en alguna revista algo parecido!!

Pauline Guillet 23 July, 2013 - 6:56 pm

¡Gracias! Tienes suerte, Burda publica patrones de chaqueta tipo Chanel cada 2 o 3 mese más o menos (en los últimos números: 123 06/2013, 102 03/2013 con cuello, 106 & 107 02/2013). Y eso en los últimos 6 meses sólo… Si no tienes las revistas, están todos a descargar en la web de Burdastyle.

Precioso, pero ha sido verlo y sudar como un pollo, impensable en el verano sevillano jajaja.

Pauline Guillet 24 July, 2013 - 11:36 am

¡Jaja! No me lo pasé tan mal, tomamos las fotos al final de la tarde y a la sombra… ¡Hay que sufrir como lo dice el refrán francés!

Valerie 24 July, 2013 - 9:27 pm

I just found your blog from a tweet by SassyT and I have to tell you that that is a BEAUTIFUL suit! The color is fabulous and I can't wait to get my hands on some boucle (even though it's still warm here in New York). This makes me ready to start my fall sewing. Great job!
