For this jacket, I started with a great trench coat pattern from the Nov 2012 issue of Burda Magazine. It is a classic style with a lean silhouette, princess seams (great for fitting) and classic trench details. Because I was making it with an allover lace fabric, I omitted most of the details to allow the fabric to be the star. I shortened it to a mid-thigh length and made small fit adjustments. The jacket is unlined but is made of three layers: soutache lace, silk taffeta (underneath lace) and silk organza (underlining underneath taffeta). I made covered snaps and sewed buttons on the front so there was no need to make buttonholes. The greatest challenge was aligning the pattern pieces on the lace to make sure the beautiful scallops would be placed properly along the hem and CF edges. t
