Thanks for your input folks! I think Phyllis pegged it for me when she said the Burda, fabulous though it is, is more Armani than YSL. I really want the YSL sharp shoulders look. So I ordered two Marfy patterns: the green one in my previous post and this one:
I’ll evaluate both of them and make a final decision when I have them in hand. Though I’m probably going to stick with my first choice. I have lots of fabrics that I can make into this jacket. And for fun, I ordered this skirt
I love the seaming detail on it, and it will be a nice change of pace for the summer. I even have some appropriately
garish bright orange poplin for it. With a little tee or tank, it could be lots of fun for summer.
