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!!

  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!!
