Talea coat for spring

Added Feb 19, 2008

by fashion1

Dresden, Germany






I made the Talea coat for spring.

I followed a how to from nayantara and sewed in seam pockets in it.

I left the latches at the shoulder. I sewed a zipper on it, cause I want to keep warm on stormy and rainy days.

I will upload a how to for it soon.

This time it was much easier to sew ;)! I sewed no lining in it, maybe I will do this later.

I´m very proud of the result, can´t wait for spring :)!!

edit 24.8.2008:

finally I added lining. It´s green fabric with pink pinstripes, I also sewed fleece between.

Material Notes

hmm, I think it´s cotton, and it´s a bit stretchy

    WOW, I love your coat! It’s so neat, great details…I really need a pattern for a spring coat too, but the Talea seems so difficult…I can’t wait for your How to:)
