This is my attempt to recreate the gorgeous Yigal Azroul coat from the movie The Devil Wears Prada. I used a 10/2003 Burda Modemagazin pattern as the basis and made a lot of big modifications to it. This was supposed to be my “next big project” and after it started coming together, it just looked awful – like something out of a bad 1960s sci-fi movie. I made some more modifications and it continued to look awful so I left it hanging in my room for weeks unfinished, a big expensive disappointment on a hanger. Then I got a message from fellow BurdaStyler JJ that said "Let’s finish our coat projects that we are not too crazy about anyway so that we won’t feel so guilty and can move on. " Very wise indeed. I still feel like it looks kind of weird and doesn’t have the elegance of the original- please offer your suggestions for improvement!

Yigal Azrouël for the original, Burda for the basis pattern that I modified to make this coat, and JJ for the final push!
