Neckline

A special neckline always gets my attention, either in a pattern or in a (web)shop. This week I made quite a few screenshots of the new Claudia Sträter collection. A Dutch brand I like, mostly good quality fabrics and beautifully sewn as well. I own a vest (waistcoat?) that has a finishing that you hardly see in rtw. Their prices are reflecting the quality, so mostly I go there when there’s a sale. But snoop-shopping in the webshop is fun too.

I LOVE the neckline of this jacket (retail price 249 euro) and would like to copy it.

It’s that I promised myself to make a few spring basics first, otherwise I would be browsing my magazines now for a basic jacket to start with.

  1. Wonderful jacket, I'm a Claudia Sträter fan as well (going when there's a sale sounds very familiar). I even have a customer card thing now and get their mailings (last one was with a discount coupon, so I can recommend getting the card). Looking forward to seeing your copy!

  4. I love an interesting neckline myself, and this one really peaks the interest! It looks so very "you" as well - hope to see you knock it off!

  6. Love the lapel treatment. I think the Jan issue of Burda included a jacket with a double lapel. The shape is very different but it might provide clues to method.

  10. It is a lovely neckline and in fact, I don't think it will be that hard to re-create.
    I don't think you will a pattern with a double lapel. I think that technically, the outside is just a round necked jacket with an overlap for the buttons with the top bit, from side of the neckline to top button, folded back. Obviously, this has to be interfaced and tailored accordingly.
    The inside notches, are, I would guess, just a seperately sewn piece that's inserted together with the facing.

  11. That is a great neckline. The lines of this jacket are so 1930s with the wider shoulder and nipped in waist. I absolutely love that look and hope we see more of it.
