    I really like this jacket. Is it an alteration of the hook and eye jacket? Is the pattern available?

    The drafting instructions for this skirt make this pattern piece out to be a square but the shape is NOT a square. Also there are NO cutting instructions! Do you cut the piece on the fold? Are there four seams? For a novice pattern you would be expected to know an incredible lot about sewing to make this pattern work for anything. This would be amazing if they would put a quarter of the effort they bother to put into a single of the regular size patterns. All it took was one look at this and I remember why I am not even going to bother going to buy a Burda pattern on sale.
