Plaid Autumn Coat

Added Nov 2, 2008

by serendipity

, Germany






I’m super happy about my new coat! For the upper part I combined the Butterick pattern 5145 and the pattern from BWOF 1/2008 # 128. For the lower part I modified the dress pattern BWOF 5/2007 # 124. I’m sure this won’t be the last coat I’ve sewn :) It was so much fun to make it.

Material Notes

Polyester, lining, 8 buttons, bias bindings





Burda, Butterick

    Wow . Really Amazing. I love the fabric along with the design. The size of the plaid design really fits well to the proportion of the coat. The design is timeless! Beauty.

    Wow, that’s gorgeous! I especially like the line at the bottom, and the finish on the inside with the lining, I mean it’s ALL really nice, but that really sets it apart!

    This coat is perfect! Warm, feminine, unique, and it definitely would make me cheerful in cold weather.
