As soon as I received the BurdaStyle book, I could not wait to try making the coat! The slim fit and round collar were my favorite. I made this coat last week using teal color wool and am really happy with the result. I used size 34.
I did not make the sash belt since I usually end up removing it. I also took out the ease on sleeves so they look less puffy.
