Burda Jacket: It's *Nearly* Finished

I thought I'd give you an update on my jacket. It's nearly finished. I just have the button placket to install.

Front view:

Back view:

So, I'm on the home stretch, except that I also have to redo the collar because it's not sitting correctly.

Here's the proof:

When you take out some of the extra fabric inside, the collar lays better, so I guess that's what I'll be doing:

I previously had to redo some of the lining because I discovered it wasn't quite large enough when I was finishing the hem.  I just made the seam allowances smaller in a couple places, like so:

The old seam allowance is glaringly obvious, but I'm not worried about it. I don't think people will be inspecting the inside of the jacket. :)

I can't lie, I will be happy when this project is over. It's taking forever!!


  1. You almost have finished, it looks great, I can´t wait to see the finished garment! The back view is gorgeous, I love the darts!

  2. Your jacket is looking absolutely amazing, you've out so much work into it and it shows with a beautiful finish. I really love the back view with the pleats, and the princess seams, and the sleeve slits.
    Can't wait to see you modelling it!!

  3. This is looking fantastic! I love the fabric.

  4. The jacket is looking amazing and will be worth all th ehard work in the end I am sure. I agree with the others that the back view is great with the darts and shaping. xx!

  5. Thanks everybody! I hope the front ends up looking as good as the back!

  6. This is looking very good! I am really looking forward to seeing the finished jacket.
    By the way, the hot pink lining is amazing!
