Control coat

The Office, Main...






Short black coat i made from a pattern from Burda 1972, with slight amendments. Reminds me of the movie poster, not intentionally though.

Material Notes

Medium weight black coating, bargain market silver-grey lining (i.e. cheap – not recommended, I swear I will go all the way to the proper shop every time now)

      danke. genau. ich habe von zu hause eine auswahl alter hefte vor dem altpapier gerettet – abgesehen von den oft falschen groessen ist eigentlich alles drin was man jemals braucht. und die kleidungsstuecke sind oft detailierter als bei neuen schnitten.

    Waow! This is super! Very contemporary pattern for a 37 years old one (It is only 3 years older than I am, it is as scary as this) it is timeless one anyway.

    I really love the collar and the pleat in the back, and it fits you perfectly! Are you saying it’ a Burda pattern from 1972? What kind of changes did you make? It’ s really lovely.

    Love the clean lines and the flattering fit. Oh, I have such a weakness for jackets and coats!
