Princess line jacket with decorative scalloped edges, 3/4 sleeves with pin tucks, self drafted nehru collar.
The original Burda pattern has no collar but after making the muslin I felt the jacket needed one.
The tricky parts of this jacket are the scallops and getting the pintucks on the sleeves even. My broadcloth seemed a tad too thick to get nice scallops even though I trimmed the seam allowances very close. They wanted to be pointy instead of curved. Then top stitching them is a bear. In the end though all the ripping seams worth the final result. Especially happy with the plastic glitter buttons to match.
