Okay lets be real...this jacket is 100% better than my last one. Not only is the quality of the faux fur better but I lined this beauty and added an inside pocket, ya I'm fancy. My last leopard jacket took me about 6 hours to make (although it did have more detail) and this one took me 3 hours.
I've sewn with this BurdaStyle pattern before and I love it. It's so simple and straight forward. You can see the other jacket here. Only made a few changes to the pattern. I cropped it because I didn't want to be swallowed whole in leopard, and I added a pocket on the inside of the lining. The fabric was purchased from Fabric.com.
Typically I buy fabric in the store but the stores in my area didn't have anything that was of high quality. I ordered samples from Fabric.com which came quickly and were great, but when my 1.5 yards of faux leopard came there was a massive misprint. Thankfully it was just enough to make the jacket, but if the misprint line would have been just a bit higher I would have needed a whole new order. Just food for thought. I suppose that's the downside to ordering online? I would still take a chance and order from them again though (I believe in second chances). Anyways, I recommend this pattern if you are looking for a jacket to mix up your wardrobe.

Madewell jeans, CottonOn cardigan, Old Navy shirt, Zara boots
Outfit from the weekend here! Wearing here what my boyfriend calls my "towel" because upon his first glance he thought it was terrycloth. Either way, wrapping myself up in this cardigan has been pretty comfortable so I spent a lot of time in it this weekend.
