Description

I wanted to make a red coat and I knew I had some great wool in my stash.. I couldn’t wait until I got hold of the December issue, so I bought the pdf pattern on BurdaStyle. As you can see the pdf-pattern has a lot of papers to put together, so I had to be patience.. Anyway, I start the project before new year’s eve, and now it’s finished, so now I’m very HAPPY :-)
I wanted to use big black buttons, but since I didn’t have any, I had to make cover buttons with black lightweight jersey, which I thought was perfect for the mission. I also used press buttons covered with red fabric, and I choose to use red lining as well.

    Your coat is fabulous! I have traced this pattern as soon as I purchased the burda issue but haven’t decided yet for the fabric! I’ m glad to see how fabulous is in this bold color! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Helt nydelig! Elsker fargen og dem knappene du laget :) Men synes du virkelig at pdf er verre enn å sitte på knærne og tegne av en kaotisk ark? :D Jeg elsker pdf, det eneste er at av og til får jeg dårlig samvittighet for miljøet på grunn av all papiret jeg bruker :/

      Tusen takk Maria! Det går fint an å tegne av mønster på bordet, og så du får jo mange flere mønster med et blad, og jeg synes det er easy-pizy.. :)
