Description

I made this coat with Burda pattern n° 103, 9/2004.

The fabric is a very thick wool/felt and underneath it I used a thick fluffy lining (don’t know how it’s called), so it feels like my coat weighs around 5 kilo’s (maybe a little less :) ) but once I wear it, I don’t feel that at all.

I don’t know how I ever managed to finish it back then, cause I hate sewing all those little details, it’s gotta go fast fast fast. Nowadays I don’t even want to begin a project like that.

    Love this!! I’d love to make one for myself, do you by any chance have a link to the pattern or the PDF still? I can’t figure out how to dig through the Burda archives…

    Great work, and in general I am not a big fan of this kind of coat, so that’s saying a lot ;) The finish is really nice, I hope you haven’t stopped doing that in your fast fast days. Proficiat :)
