Pink coat with an oversized collar

Added Jan 23, 2012

When Burda Style team asked me to collaborate on the book, I was so excited. I ended up sewing a blouse, but I was asked to make several sketches for a coat too.
I thought of a classic coat with an oversized shawl collar and heavy topstitching. The idea was stuck in my brain for more than a year and I finally decided to materialize it. I didn’t use the pattern from the book. Instead, I used a tried and trued pattern from the Burda Style magazine, in order to make the job easier. I drafted the collar myself.
While sewing I used some nice couture techniques. For more details and pictures take a look on my blog Stepalica.

    Well, I am not an expert… but it looks so well constructed and has therefore a vintage feeling, you know, that beyond-the-obvious-but-not-shouting halo… Great work!
