Reggio Emilia, I...
Based on a Burda pattern, I wanted to face my first lined coat ever…and it was a success!!!
The pattern is quite easy actually, so the most difficult parts were finding out how to sew in the lining in the most invisible way and finishing the collar and yoke overstiches…but i think they came out quite well!
I only refused to face the buttonholes…the coat was finished and i didn’t want to make a disaster…so i sewn automatic buttons inside and fake blue buttons on the outside!
i suggest this pattern to all the ones who are at a first attempt, cause it’s easy to cut and understand….and if you use felted wool or flannel you can even exclude the lining!
This is a 40 burda size, I used a 100% poly blue lining fabric and a 100% wool tartan for the outside (quite spring colours, but a wonderful vintage fabric my granny stocked and never used since the ’70)
polyestere lining, lightweight wool
