Burda 09-2007-105

This jacket/top is for my daughter, I posted on the change of the front pattern piece last week and this is the result. When I can get DD to show I'll make a picture, but 14-year olds are not always in the right mood :-).

But she is very happy with it, and so am I. Great fit in size 38. I love Burda! They have great fashion forward patterns, and once you know what changes you need, it's always the same (like Summerset mentioned in a comment).

In the comments on my last post Alex mentioned Jalie patterns to have a great fit too. And I wholeheartily agree with that. Through reading reviews on Pattern Review I got to know Jalie patterns and first tried the jeans jacket with great results. Since I have tried several others, and they are true to size! One of my next projects will be a Jalie top.


  1. I love it! She will definitely be the envy of her friends and classmates in such a stylish jacket. Lucky for her, mom sews!

  2. Wow, that is a great jacket. Your dd is so lucky.

  3. I love this jacket and the changes you made to it. I'd also love to see your daughter wearing it.

  4. It's gorgeous! I love this style!
