Fabulous jacket! No wonder it's your favourite. I like how you left off the buttons and your fabric choice.

I love your take on this pattern, very sophisticated grown-up style, I couldn't guess it from original model photos of Burdastyle, thanks for the review.

Absolutely lovely. I love all the details on this jacket, and I could definitely see it made up in a variety of materials. This one is going on the must-sew list. Thanks for the heads up about the sleeve cap issue.

Thanks for all the kind comments! @Beek: I think this pattern (Burda 8020) is no longer for sale on the Burda website. Don't know if it's still in stores though. You can download it on BurdaStyle for $4, I think. Search for "Hikaru" on their website. Good luck!
