Dress-coat. Very nice pattern, quite complex but sometimes I like to spend some more time at the sewing machine while making double finishing seams imitating jeans’. It’s a pretty universal model; it’s easy to change the image using other items of clothes ( add pants or shorts and a top, unbotton the coat and go for a walk or shopping) or different accessoires (add a scarf or kerchif – and you are ready for work). I think blue colour makes it more womanish and less sportive.
The pattern was taken from Burda magazine 5/2009, # 126 ( one of the best issues, in my opinion, I made several outfits from it ).
Linen is the best choice if you don’t worry about rumpling – I do not:)
