For this year's Meeting with the Natron and Soda folks on the Christmas market in Essen, I decided to go in historical clothes. The beautiful Nachtkatze inspired me to do this when she presented her historical outfit which she wore for another Christmas market.
After deciding to do the outfit Victorian style, I knew I needed a warm jacket and a skirt. I used the Burda tornure pattern I already had at home and some wool fabric I bought on the fabric market with Nachtkatze. I only had 1.2m, but it was barely enough! I'm really grateful I marked all the changes I needed to do for proper fit from the last jacket, because I remember how much I hated fitting it. After three wadders, I produced a WGT outfit and this jacket which both fit good!
The buttons were bought in Münster together with Neisella when we visited the secret fabric seller hidden in the outskirts of Münster. I really love the pattern, but now I only have 3 of each colour left... Oh, and could you all please admire the wonderfull button holes my new sewing machine makes? They are close up worthy, aren't they!?
