Super cute. I love the neckline and collar! The stripes are perfect.

Thanks for the review. I have this pattern down in my SWAP for this year so it is great to see how it worked out for you. Looks great.

I had overlooked this pattern and now it's going on the wishlist! It looks really good on you and I think it might look ok on me too. Thanks for the review!

Hurray! I've been waiting for a review of this and I love it! Your take has such a nice punky retro feel- wonderful!!

I love this jacket. I think your version is much prettier than the pattern picture. I don't mind the stripe "mistake" too very much at all. I wonder if you used a sash of dark coordinating fabric over the join between bodice and lower jacket if the stripe mismatch would entirely disappear! I think, of course, that you should wear it regardless, often and with joy; it is extremely flattering. And, I do love your choice of fabric; you are right it is entirely evocative of a bygone era. I want a jacket just like yours!

Wow! this looks great on you and very inspiring as I am a similar size and shape to you, the collar is extremely flattering!

Beautiful! I wouldn't have bothered with this pattern until I saw your version.

Yay to everyone, thank you! I may end up adding those fab pocket flaps with stripes going horizintally to mix it up a bit too. But possibly not as I love it and have had heaps of compliments. I don't know why Burda chose a busy chiffon to make up for their sample as it does nothing for the pattern at all. Next version going well and I'll blog about it and put it up here as I think it is going to be completely different in appearance.
