Nice style -- looks great on you and I love how you made the piecing stand out more.

Another overlooked Burda. I remember the vest version with the odd lapel business, but the jacket is outstanding, especially for anyone uninterested in doing a lapel.

Very interesting fabric combination to showcase the seaming detail. You look great (even in PJs) in this style.

I've been meaning to make this same jacket...loved it when I saw it in Burda as it's similar to something from Ann Taylor that I saw. Congrats on making it through another Burda jacket - they are always interesting in design and sewing challenges. It turned out great!

I love the fit you've got at the shoulders - this is where I always have problems! Looks great :)

Your jacket looks great on you!! Congratulations. What a fun idea and a great way to use up small fabric pieces. I would have never thought of doing it the way you did. You inspire me to venture out.
