bier jacket variation

Last week, we were seeing how to make a biker jacket using the Quart coat pattern and I can finally show you the finished jacket.
The inspiration for this variation was this Kristen jacket by Iro:

Instead of the grey jersey fabric, I chose one of my stock I’d been keeping for more than two years. This bouclé tweed is from Linton (official supplier of Chanel) and I was waiting for the perfect idea to use it. I’m glad I kept it as I really like the constrast between the “lady” fabric and the rock’n roll shape of the biker jacket.
I interfaced all the jacket pieces with a light weft interfacing as the tweed is quite loosely woven. As I explained in the previous post, I just cut the pattern pieces above hip level and used a separable metallic zipper instead of the buttonholes.
You can find the tutorial to make the biker version here: Quart biker jacket tutorial.
In the end, I’m very happy about the way this jacket turned out. It’s easy to wear, comfortable and the fabric is so pretty. I wore it everyday on my trip to Paris. If you are making this version, don’t hesitate to send me pictures or leave a comment.
Have a great week!
