Great jacket with a fabulous pop of color for the lining!

Love the coat. I like the two very different looks you get with the collar. Nicely done.

I love your jacket/coat! Didn't realize it was two different colors/sleeves until I read your review. LOL!

Your coat is lovely. Your attention to detail is inspiring. Well done.

You should make it Dina!!! Tonya what they lack in instruction really is made up in garment quality. You should start with a simple silhouette and go for it :) Thanks everyone! It's definitely a bit of a statement piece for me. And of course now I want to make another jacket :)

That lining with that fabric..... juicy!! I love the detail of adding the chain hook in back with the tag, so fancy! This looks really great on you, I've been waiting to see it done!!!

It's beautiful! I think you did a great job. I used to use Burda Magazine patterns all the time but recently, I'm too lazy. I know the time it takes to trace, add seam allowances, plan, read and re-read their instructions :) I find the cut of their designs perfect for "real" bodies and I learned a lot of new techniques from their instructions (even though they aren't written well for beginners). I love your choice of fabrics too! I don't know why I rarely chose a vibrant color or pattern for the linings of my garments. It's so gorgeous!

Very unique and super cute! I am reluctant to try a Burda pattern with the apparent sparse instructions. I'm impressed with your perseverance that turned out a very cute coat.

I love it! I am glad you made it through the process. You have given me hope that maybe one day I can try this one too as I just love how it looks, both in the mag and on you!
