I love this jacket and it looks great on you. Burda's pockets are always tiny, I've got in the habit of redrafting them as standard.

I love your jacket--especially the color! I am actually planning to make a short trenchcoat jacket in a yellow fabric. Nice job!

This is just gorgeous. I love yellow and unfortunately can't wear it myself....Probably why I love it. Anyway, you did a beautiful job with the topstitching. Wear it proudly!

I love your jacket! It has great details and is such a cheerful color. Thank you for the detailed review and the tip about paper towel buttonholes. I will have to try this.

Neat jacket! I love the style and color; it looks good with the brown pants.

Yes, it's difficult to have the facing meet the bottom hem cleanly without some form of stabilizing.. Especially in sort of lightweight, stretchy fabric as this one. And I think what your back would have needed most would have been a little looseness, not really more petiting. Just because you can fit something within an inch of your skin doesn't mean you should :-). Yes some waist shaping is good, especially if you're not tall and anorexic, but too much waist shaping is imho what can slide into the hunchback impression. Not to mention that in LA you could reasonably expect to be wearing a bit of sweater underneath if you're in need of rain gear. Now do keep in mind that this looks utterly fabulous overall :-). The color is to die for, the fit much better than anything anyone could buy, your attention to topstitching pays off handsomely. I'm drooling with envy.
