Livingston, New ...
I finished this coat before Xmas last year but have no chance to show here.
Pattern was base on Burda pattern #106 from 9/07 issue,
I drafted the collar by using mrs.stylebook
as the guideline, back then no body have
done this collar pattern, now you can
use burda mag. for both collar and sleeve!
I have never done anything with interlining
of tailoring before so
it took me a long time to study the interfacing, interlining and tailoring for coat.
This is my first winter coat.
I was inspried by elainemay of burdastyle (she doesn’t play here anymore, too sad, I
miss her and her creations so much. If not
for her awesome coats, I would never ever
thought of making one.
I love the original coat as is so I didn’t change the design one bit.
Wool from NYC garment district.
