Desperation set in and yesterday I headed to the mall for a pair of jeans. After finding a pair marked down from $70 to $15 (SCORE), I went snoop shopping at Anthropologie.
I think Burda designers must be going to the same shows as Anthropologie’s.
Here is the Checkered Please Coat that I tried on ($178). Oh, and you can now download photos from Anthropologie.com!
You can’t tell from the photo above, but the jacket has a pieced yoke in the back and front (is it called a yoke in the front??) that extends through the shoulders.
Here is the #108 jacket from the October Burda.
The difference? The pieced yokes on the Burda are on the bias.
Check the line drawing, right down to the pieced shoulder, hood and back.
The same pattern. Oddly enough, I even have a houndstooth black, white and grey wool. What I don’t have, is the time :)
