    Also I am the same height as you and want to shorten the pattern. Do you mind telling me where you shortened the pattern and how much you took out? Thanks so much x

      I shortened the body by 2", where would depend on your own body proportions (I did some above and some below the waist). The sleeves I had to shorten 3.5".

    When you printed the pattern for this which scaling option did you select?

      Honestly, I wish I could remember but I can’t. I tried a few different ways until I got it right (before realizing that I had this issue of BS at home and could have just traced it!).

    I really like this… waterfall jackets are an upcoming trend – at least here. Glad winter break is coming up so I can finish some projects, and maybe try this one? ;) Good job!

    This is lovely, I want to download it as my 1st pattern from here but I don’t get the sizing? 72, 74 etc…I’m from the UK & I’m a size UK 10-12, is it a multi size? On the size chart I see nothing that compares to these numbers. Thanks people.

      Josephine, this is sized for talls. I am only 5’3" tall and usually start with a size 34 so I had to really scale down the pattern quite a bit. According to Burda’s size chart, a 72 is equivalent to about a size 36/UK10/US4-6 and a height of 5’9".

    That is gorgeous! Do you mind if I ask where you got the trim?
