Love the simple style in linen. The collar is so flattering on you.

BEAUTIFUL jacket, Annette! Burda's jacket did not do it for me. Yours is very nicely tailored and made, which is lacking in RTW jackets that I have seen up close and personal. The white is so apropos for summer and versatile with your fall wardrobe. I like the length and stlyle on you. BTW: I adore your hair!

That's a wow! Fantastic dramatic collar. I'm with you about leaving out nonsensical details.

Beautiful jacket.

Thank you, ladies! You know, I never thought about that, Shams, but you're right, the line drawings DON'T show those shoulders as being dropped. I think the actual design is intentional, because the sleeve has a fairly flat curve, but somebody wasn't paying attention when they drew them -- ha!

Love your version. I have this pattern but have not made it up yet. You have inspired me.

A GREAT jacket, Annette, and very flattering! But I am a little confused. When I look at the made up jacket on the envelope, it does have dropped shoulders, as it does on your version. But the line drawing really looks like a regular set-in sleeve. Do you think it's a drafting error? Like you, I much prefer a set in sleeve and this jacket is so cute. I had never seen the pattern, but now I have to track it down, but I think I would change it to a set-in sleeve. Thanks, once again, for a most thorough review!!!

My, my the jacket is a true couture look in every way. The heavy linen, elegant style, amazing collar and perfect details just makes me gasp in amazement. Absolutely no one makes a better jacket than you do; that is the basis of your designation, the Jacket Queen. So glad that you have shown us the lovely pic of you in your new jacket. You do look like a queen.

You look wonderful - and the jacket too!! Ha!! Love how you sized up for a perfect fit. The look is elegant and stylish and everything I love and I will not buy this pattern - no! Well when is that darn Burda going on sale again? Well done Annette as always and so good to see a review from you - one from me is waaay overdue but is coming soon

So you chose the simple unadorned style. There's a name for the result: "Simple Elegance" and that is what you achieved with your very pretty jacket.....a very elegant look! The collar style of course is fabulous and looks great on you. Keep those reviews coming!!!!!

This is such a stylish and chic jacket on you Annette! Wonderful work and very inspiring to me, who has been sewing pj pants and easy tops. Good point about design details...I had not thought of that before.

Another excellent review by the "Jacket Queen"! This jacket is so "you". I really hope you make another one. Are you sure you have "lots" of patterns? LOL! Anyway, I love this one on you and always marvel at how you have such a knack for "seeing" how a pattern will look without certain details (able to see the bones of a pattern). This is another winner even if you don't like the back! Ha! You won't even SEE the back when you're wearing it, and you're always your worst critic. I am sure as wonderful as the front looks, that the back looks just as nice! Wonderful sewing, Annette...... as ALWAYS!

Re Becca said...
That does look fabulous. I totally agree about those pattern pieces, that annoys me about their download patterns too.

This is so YOU Annette, the button and the style. Lovely. And thank you for your Granny Grump remark, smiling here and absolutely feeling exactly the same, though on another webalbum site. Not all changes make for easier working.

Very smart, and an impressive effort. I agree with you about pointless detail; I often skip them.

Renata said...
No, no, no, I don't need another pattern. Except I love the collar and lapels, in fact I just love the whole look, and it does look so flattering on you. That clasp closure is perfect too. Oh, love the fabric too.
