Description

I made this coat for my boyfriend as a gift for Valentin’s day (and also to thank him to be so patient with all the noise I make with my sewing machine)

I used a burda pattern (http://www.les-coupons-de-saint-pierre.fr/fr/mode-hommes-sportswear/6122-modele-n-7142-manteau-veste-homme.html)
The major problem was the sleeves because there were too large and I had to sew them many times.

    so happy to see another men’s fashion project here!!! I am familiar with the problem of the sleeves. Don’t know why they are nearly always to big in the burda patterns. But go on sewing for man, you did a great job. :-)
