My 2011 winter coat
Added Dec 3, 2011
This is my first coat sewn from a Burda pattern. I wanted it to be warm with a very deep removable hood and a look a little retro. I used a coupon of 3m fabric bought at 3 euros in a market, a satin lining khaki green and a few pieces of faux fur for cuffs and around the hood.
I have slightly modified the pattern, I Blew Up the neck, changed the shape of the pockets and sleeves and added a single row of buttons and a martingale in the back.
It took me about 10 working days to complete this coat. The more complicated was the tailored collar and installation of the liner for which I used a very slippery fabric … it was hell but now it’s heaven to slip in! : )
