Great jacket -- very pretty modification. :) To answer your (rhetorical?) question, I think "what Burda intended here" was to echo the tunic-shaped Nehru jacket of the late 60's.

Even after LindsayT and Dawn's warnings on this jacket, I gave it a try, and I tried altering the style lines but I still didn't like it on me. Your version turned out very well - congrats on facing all the hard work it took to turn this pattern into that jacket.

I found it very interesting to read about your alterations, etc. Thanks!

Joan 1954 - O dear this will date me, but I remember wearing these Nehru Jackets and they were very form fitting (with Oriental ease not Occidental ease). This jacket really had no waist delineation at all, and was very baggy at the onset. If Burda meant this very fitted jacket they missed the fit totally. It didn't even have the shape of the Nehru Jacket that I knew back in the 60's. That's what was so confusing about this pattern. Almost to a one, every Burda I've made up has had great line and style. That's what has made them so appealing. This is one that didn't look at all like it did in the picture. Very confusing!

Amazing... I just wandered off and read your entire blog... I'm such a sucker for wonderful classic design executed beautifully.

Hi, Claire -- thanks for the explanation! :) I was there then, too, but never actually wore a Nehru jacket, so I didn't know they were form-fitting. Many 60's styles weren't, so maybe Burda assumed the same thing I did (oops). I think it's still a fantastic looking jacket, though!

Very cute jacket. Your changes made it look so much better!

After reading Lindsay's review I figured that the front seams were more style lines than fitting seams. You've made it look chic and stylish. Great changes

Great jacket, your modifications, make sense and you did not loose the look of the original pattern.

I love your jacket and am glad to see a review of it because this was one of the ones I liked from that issue and considered making. Your excellent review and pattern changes will be a great help -- thank you. Yours looks great!
