So, I finally got up the courage to make my very own Talea. I found this great tweed wool and just fell in love. I knew it had to become a Talea – I’d been drooling over the pattern for months.

So, here’s my version. I left all the tabs and epaulets on – I really liked the military look. In hindsight I might have made the collar a little smaller, but I like it anyways.

I used Benediktas (sp?) google video to make a lining for it, because I wanted to be able to wear it in below zero weather, which I have, and it keeps me good and warm. Good ’ol Canada.

Other than that, it was incredibly fun to make. My machine had no problem with the material, even when I had multiple layers to deal with. The instructions were a little hard to follow because of the translation issues, so ***If anyone is attempting to do this and gets stuck – I know I got stuck on the collar for a bit – feel free to send me a message and I’ll do my best to walk you through it.


Material Notes

Wool, lining, interfacing, a bunch of buttons and lottts of thread.

    wow i have also been drooling over this pattern, WISHING i could make it. do you reckon it’s really hard, or just something to take slowly. it’s almost winter here, and i love coats! yours looks quite professional and wow again to below zero weather – Australia just doesn’t reach that unless you’re at our one snowy area lol
