Fort Worth, Texa...
I needed a new jacket and decided to go with the Burda hikaru pattern. All in all I am pleased with the results. I do wish it were more fitted but I do not have a dressmaker so I was relying on measurements. I decided to not use the pockets or collar on the original pattern. The collar was an accident because their instructions were not very clear at that point, but it still looks good without it. I also opted on hook and eye closures instead of a zipper because the fabric I used had a little bit of stretch to it and zipper made it bow out in front. Not too bad for my first jacket. It took about 3 to 4 days or 24 hours work time to complete it. Let’s hope it keeps me warm
