- Burda used to have a pattern in the late 80s / early 90s for a waist
length men's jacket with a couple of different collar styles. You
could check their website for back issues. Whenever I have needed a
quick bolero lately, I have gone for a tailcoat pattern with a waist
seam, and just omitted the tails. Also check out the costume sections
of current pattern catalogues. I seem to remember (Simplicity I think)
a Queen Victoria and Prince Albert section in which there was a waist
length jacket with a stand collar.
