Your jacket looks wonderful. It doesn't however look as boxy as the one on the pattern cover. Did you shape it a little?

I did, once I sewed the side seam and saw how boxy it is, I went back and sewed it again with shaping for the waist.

Hi! I've got the same question as one of the readers below: what did you do to add shaping to your jacket to make it less boxy, or it that just the luck of the photo? Thanks!

I'm inspired. I can't wait to get started this weekend, and I'll try the alterations as suggested by Choo.

After seeing this version of the jacket I really want to take this class. Thanks for sharing, and for the instructions listed here in the comment section. Did you also add some length to it?
