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.

Love the jacket! The color is beautiful, and I especially like the contrasting lining. Thanks for the tip on the papertowel buttonhole! You really did a professional job with this, and I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing the jacket at lot!

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.
