Mirela’s Eva Jacket & Marie Skirt

BurdaStyle – Eva Jacket, originally uploaded by fmirela.

Finally I have a suit. I paired BurdaStyle’s Eva jacket and Marie skirt with this stretch twill cotton fabric from fashion fabrics club – still available.

I went with the fake pocket clasps and no lining for comfort in summer days.
I must give credits to my mom helping me out with this creation. We cut the pattern and fabric out together and she assisted me with the ironing of every seam and interfacing piece, while I was sewing. I have made this in just a few hours and am thrilled with the results.
The Eva pattern is perfect, I’m crazy about the bust darts and the collar, it fits perfectly! I’m definitely sewing this pattern again and again.

The little Marie skirt…I was a little afraid to sew this one, thinking it will be kind of bulky or puffy, but it is cute and girlie! The leftover fabric from the jacket was just enough to make one side with the box pleats and the other one simple… I pinned down the pleats on the paper pattern to create a plain skirt panel. I also made it about 11cm shorter.
I like this skirt with the pleats in the back and the simple pencil skirt front.

    You should sew this over and over again…it’s fantastic! Very stylish, young, and yet not too funky. I love it.

    I love that you made it a print fabric suit instead of a solid-colored one. And the jacket, especially.

    I have honesty never replied to a post before! When I found your dart instructions for the ‘Eva’ I was overjoyed. Burda is confusing and instructions are paltry! You are a God send! Thank goodness this stuff remains online forever. much much appreciated! Your finished piece is beautiful.
