Description

My most ambitious project so far. I joined a 7 week sewing course for this one, where every one brought their own project. It was the first time for a lot of things: lining, sleeves, collar… Unfortunately, I had to drop the pockets for lack of time (but better pockets than any other thing, I thought :-)).
The fabric is a very nice boucle, and the pattern is Burda 8292.
All in all, I am super happy with the results… but I will keep the coat for special ocassions, as I keep unpicking threads from the boucle with every pointy stuff I find on my way.

    This is beautiful. Well done, can see why you’re really pleased with this – I would be if I’d made it too. :-)

    I love this coat! You should be proud that your skills show so well. I am working on a coat in the same fabric (in cream) and was wondering what type of hem you used for the sleeves and bottom.

      hello… I sewed the hem by hand. I just folded the lining a couple of centimeters above the bottom of the coat (don’t know if this is what you meant… let me know if not).

    It turned out really beautiful and also professional looking! I am planning to make a coat in this style and it inspires me to see one so well constructed :).

    Good job! The fit looks perfect and the style is so classic. Isn’t it satisfying to make a complicated, intricate project? Your next project will be so quick in comparison.
