I'm thinking of getting this pattern since Burda are going cheap locally. But I'm just wondering about a couple of things since I can't find photos online as I have with some other patterns. 1) What is back like, is it vents, pleats or what? 2) What are lining instructions like? Presumably it gives a pattern for the lining but I have seen comment elsewhere about instructions being very short. 2 sentences on some designs. 3) Does it feel like it could be worn regularly or would adjustments need to be made? Since it is being sold as a costume it is presumably intended for occasional stage or festival wear so comfort would be a secondary consideration. Having read reviews about other menswear recreating clothing from the time the ioriginal this is based on would probably have been built to try to shape the posture of the gentleman wearing it. I read a review somewhere talking about a problem with the shaping of the armhole. really thinking of buying this but seriously wondering to what extent I'd need to customise elements and therefore be aware of them before cutting. I've tended to make wearable dummies of things out of 2nd hand material but would really like to know about things like taht before making them since I'd like them to be wearable themselves. Sorry if that's too many questions in response to a helpful review.
