This bomber jacket by BurdaStyle is my fastest make ever! Definitely not the easiest one, as I didn’t understand almost anything in the instructions, but I made it really super fast thanks to intuition and 10 youtube videos I watched about bomber jackets) lol

Have questions about those drawings? Learn more about it here.

Super useful links:

  1. Tutorial for single welt pocket
  2. Video for sewing whole bomber jacket (a different one, but gives the idea!)

And changes:

  1. Shortened the bodice by 7 cm
  2. Shortened the sleeve by 2 cm
  3. Added 1 cm seam allowance…

I believe that’s it)) I mentioned all in the video that’s 100%))

I would change for the next one:

  1. Maybe add 2cm to the bodice, it won’t make huge difference, but will give extra deepness to the pockets
  2. Sew the zipper to the facing before attaching lining with the outer fabric
  3. Start the zipper closer to the neckline
  4. Maybe making neckline slightly higher, so he won’t need to use scarf when the weather will be colder

We are so loving this jacket!!! I’m super happy!!!)) And seeing that it’s the only jacket he is wearing now makes me want to make more and more jackets for him))
