I used Burdastyle Magazine pattern #129 issue 8/2011 size 34. I loved the simplicity of this coat. It’s also quite comfortable with 3/4 sleeves. Easy to make but I had problems with the pockets so I had to modify. Otherwise, I’m glad I cut a size 34 because it fits just right.
There’s a detail of an inverted pleat in the back which allows for ease of movement but still manages to flatter.
