Jodi's Book Coat

Added Feb 23, 2012

by Jodi Wade

Budapest, Hungary






The coat I made for the BurdaStyle book.

I was so excited to participate with this! I got sent this gorgeous, soft green wool and had one week to sew up the coat before sending it to New York.

- I lengthened the bodice
- Lengthened the sleeves
- Changed the skirt to a half circle skirt
- More buttonholes ( I think triangular bound buttonholes are easier to do than regular bound ones….)
- Topstitching on all bodice seams

I wrote a bit about on my blog: Jodi Made

Material Notes

Pendleton wool
Lined with a blue/green fabric


Garment Type

    Hi Jodie, Absolutely love the triangular buttonholes. Can you point us in the direction of a tutorial on this, or is it on your blog. The coat is beautiful on you and the special details make all the difference.

    What unique buttonholes! I love the daring length of the coat, it’s very elongating. And that color is beautiful!
