Hi at all,
here you can see an overcoat, that was made during the christmas days.
It took a lot of nervs and time, because I just wanted to test the overcoat construction by using the Einheitssystem and so, I’ve chosen a cheap fabric. That fabric was not warm, therefore I decided to line this coat with paded lining. But that cotton wool sticked on the overfabric, which made it impossible to wear the garment without any folds and creases. Well then I had to take out the lining and line it itself ;-) That ment a nice solution.
One thing I hate is that in bought overcoats, the sleeves are never lined with something warm. But if it’s cold, I always have the problem, that my arms are cold. Therefore I needed a bigger sleeve, so that there will be enough space to install the padded lining. It worked quite well, but now, the ease of the sleeves is about 14% which also gives you a lot of comfort.
It came out a bit tooooo classic… in my opinion.
