BurdaStyle 11/2018 - 119 Blazer

I loved this blazer from the November 2018 issue and since there is no collar and only fake pockets it is a lot easier to make than you might think.  The buttonhole is in the waist seam so that is easy too.

11/2018 - 119 Blazer

For this version I did things slightly differently and made it from a ponte knit (really only because I have lots and it takes up lots of space in my stash!) and left it unlined.  I also lengthened it as I plan to wear it with jeans or pants and prefer my butt to be covered, with a skirt or dress I think the original pattern length would be better for me.

All the seams were finished together on my serger and then I topstitched to flatten and define the seemliness and edges.

The instructions are to interface the whole front of the jacket, but I decided this was not necessary in my fabric.  I only interfaced the back neck facing, 1 pair of pocket flaps, front peplum facing and the inner front band.  In a lighter suiting material I would use more.

I'm really happy with how this turned out, and dare I say this might be my new TNT blazer pattern.  As I mentioned it is pretty easy to make for a jacket and the clean collarless front mean it can work with lots of different options underneath.

Update since drafting this post.....I've already cut another one in a teal crepe, very similar to the magazine original!


  1. This looks really nice. Good to know this pattern makes up well in ponte.
    Don't quite see point of fake pockets (except they are easier) and wouldn't make a jacket without them. Whenever Burda has fake pockets (or even where there are none at all)I turn them into real ones.

    1. Haha you are right, I am just a bit lazy and also don't really use pockets except in coats. I think it would be easy to add them in here though at the waist seam.

  2. Looking very sophisticated there Allison. The stitching is perfect and the seams so crisp. The length looks great on you with jeans, great move!

  3. It looks very sharp! I think is also very comfy I think.Beautiful.

  4. That looks great! really nicely done.

  5. Very nice! I once thought a unlined ponte jacket would be clingy but when I finally made one it was an instant favourite. I love the style lines of this pattern!

    1. Yes it's really now a cardigan that looks like a jacket!

  6. a style that is both relatively simple and sharp looking at the same time. Looks great. There are so many things I want to sew from the Burda magazines - not enough time :)

    1. Oh yes, same here - not to mention all my non Burda patterns!

  7. Love this and understand why you want to make it your new TNT blazer!

  8. Love the lines on this jacket and the longer length looks great wit your jeans.

  9. I think I need this pattern! Yours looks great.

  10. What a beautiful jacket, indeed sharp looking as Beth says. This one has been on my to sew list when I first saw the preview. Should be getting it higher on the list ;).

  11. It's gorgeous! I love the longer length too!!

  12. I would have never thought about making this jacket in Ponte, but it looks great.

  13. This would really work in my wardrobe too, in ponte! It's a wonderful fit on you; very flattering. Well done!

  14. Ms. Allison, this is a great looking jacket and you ware it well. It's so crisp and smooth. Great look.

  15. This looks fantastic! I've been looking for an easy to make blazer, this one might have to jump up higher on my list.
