When I read your comment about adding a snap at the level of the button to keep the front band from flipping up, I looked at the Burda model again to check. That must be shy she's twisted at an angle, to make it look like the front band is turned up because her shoulders aren't even. You were smart to add the snap. Beautiful jacket, BTW.

I had admired this jacket in the magazine and I really like it on you. Great job. Some of us have "circle avoidance" in Burda -- nice to know that 3 circles is do-able!

Congratulations on a lovely and flattering jacket. Now, the skirt is where an underlining in silk organza would really be a big plus. It would reduce that wrinkling significantly. It doesn't add that much time or money to the project and the skirt would last longer and look better at the end of the day. Threads did an article a few years ago showing skirts with and without underling and there is a major difference.

Congratulations on a beautiful jacket Katie and using your first BWOF pattern :) It's nice to see an inseam buttonhole on a jacket. Your fabric choice is ideal for this design.
