I'm looking for a pattern for a mandarin collar jacket -- one that has some shape but not princess seams. I have kwik sew 3438 ... but one reviewer says it's pretty boxy. I can add bust darts, but would rather have a more fitted jacket to start with. Any suggestions?

I'll be using a beautiful embroidered taffeta ombre wide-stripe and don't want the stripes messed up with princess cut.

Perhaps the Textile Studio Patterns Mandarin Shirt Jacket is close to what you're seeking. I have the pattern and haven't yet made it up, but I know a number of people have been happy with it. Scroll down to see the line drawing.

Butterick 5532 not much shaping, but would not have darts or seams breaking up your fabric pattern.
New Look 6942 might need longer sleeves or an added lining if that is what you are looking for.

Thanks Barbara & Fictionfan. I think the Butterick might be closest to what I'm looking for.
