Austin, United S...
I used Burda style pattern 7318 and stay true to the pattern instructions with the exception of bound button holes instead machine button holes.
I interfaced the whole coat with ProWEFT Supreme-LIGHT Fusible Interfacing from Fashionsewingsupply.com for added structure, and lined it with Kasha flanel backed satin lining for added warmth.
My son and DIL live almost 2000 miles away so I made this coat with only 4 measurements, chest, shoulder, sleeve and coat length, and no fitting. I think the coat is a little big on her at the shoulder, but she didn’t want to wait.
Wool, Kasha lining.
