Of course it's exactly the wrong size...

The Autumn/Winter 09/10 edition of Burda Plus Fashion includes a jacket that I am totally in love with:

Of course it is plus sized and petite, so in order to make this work I may have to unravel a section of the fabric of space and time, or something equally involved. Dang and blast, why can't these things be easy? Of course, if they were easy, I would enjoy them so much less, so I guess I should welcome the challenge, lol. The real question is: do I make it in gray (love me some gray), but I already have a long gray overcoat, or do I make it it in the heavy-ish navy wool I have mentally earmarked for a pea-coat, or do I go different and select a pattern? Choices, we likes them.


  1. Ooh, I'm petite and plus. It's very few and far between when being short and fat has it's advantages. I know you're up for the challenge. I can't wait to see your version of this very stylish cape/coat garment. I think it would be lovely in gray. After all, it is a completely different garment than your overcoat.

  2. To be honest, I wish they would offer a larger selection of size ranges and combination, so I have no real complaints. Quite frankly, when I looked at the sizing chart, the difference was not that extreme, so the changes may not be that complex, I guess I just wanted to whine about it a little, lol. Of course none of that even remotely deals with the fact that I do not really NEED a jacket like that at all, that the coat I have is more than nice and quite sufficient etc..... I guess a little refiguring of the pattern is the price I have to pay to get a "frivolous" coat, lol. Serves me right!
