Every year Burda World of Fasion (BWOF) makes great jacket patterns that are easy to sew, unlined, and with interesting design lines for the Plus size range. Exhibit A: Asian Fusion jacket Exhibit B: Wrap jacket
The misses’ patterns meanwhile are usually structured (interfaced) which is hot and doesn’t breathe; and also means they’re lined to cover up the interfacing. They generally have notched collars or welt pockets or other details of cenventional jackets that are harder to sew. Bummer! Hot to wear and hard to sew. Who needs it? Especially when Burda proves there are such great jackets to sew that aren’t complicated. Now, to be fair perhaps this is a function of the consulting designers who made these two jackets. They aren’t part of the regular Burda design team.
