I made the Burdastyle book version of the coat no changes. This is the first coat I have made with a lining so I wanted to follow the instructions exactly so I could learn from them. I do plan to make the variations of this coat too. I am short so my only alterations were to take 1.5" out of the bodice and 1" out of the lower half of the coat. Fits perfectly with these adjustments.
A brushed knit fabric from Spotlight and the lining I think is a crepe back satin which was thrifted so long ago I can’t remember where from.
