    I am so UNHAPPY with this pattern I’ve buyed… never more :/. I made a toile reading previous negative comments and I decided to not sew more… honestly, the worst pattern I ever used. Finally, Burda, you should refound me, really I can’t use it – it is not precise, not fitting, not at all as in the pictures you show on website :(.

    I’ve just bought this pattern, so no idea, but I’m quite worried about, after reading comments below :(. Hope I will do it quite easily…

    I am glad I read merrybe’s comments before I made this! I made a toile\muslin before making the actual jacket and I can confirm that it is not as fitted as the pictures show. (I made option 1B.) I also connected the waist darts and the longer shoulder darts and lengthen the peplum darts. I am 5ft 9in tall (so technically I should fit the “tall” size) and the jacket fit me (lengthwise) like the photograph, but I want a longer jacket so I lengthen the bodice by 2 inches. One problem that should be fixed- I struggled to put the sleeves in straight and eventually realized that the notch marked ‘7’ was at least 1 cm off. When I just matched the top and bottom notches for the sleeves they fit properly. Another thing BurdaStyle should fix- add more pictures. On the last page of instructions there is space for at least two more images and more pictures would have helped clarify the instructions for adding a lining. I made the jacket with brocade, which is fairly thick fabric and when I added the hooks and eyes at the end of the project I realized I needs something more substantial- so I used frog closures instead. I am pleased with how this jacket turned out, but I wouldn’t call it easy.

    I bought that issue of bursa easy for this jacket and for the first time I was really disappointed! Usually I can make burda patterns with only minor alterations for lack of curves or length of limbs. But this jacket ist seriously misrepresented in the photo, which is heavily photoshopped, if you ask me. I have about the same build as the model in the second pic and the jacket looked like I had tried to upcycle an old men’s blazer! It ist not fitted at all and the waist line ended somewhere on my hips. I took it apart almost completely, moved the waistline up, took in the sides enough to achieve a fairly fitted look and lengthened the darts in the peplum. I also connected the waist darts and the longer schoulder darts. Oh, and think about replacing the hooks with another type of closure: if you ever wear anything knitted or a loosely woven shawl with them, they WILL get entangled…I chose a zipper and it’s fine. Will be posting a picture of the finished things soon.
