Tweed winter coat
Added Dec 3, 2010
My grandmother gave me some heavy weight tweed for a winter coat and after much procrastination I finally got round to making it. I used the tweed for the outside, interlining for extra warmth and lining fabric on the inside. I made a mess of the buttonholes but it’s the warmest coat ever.
Unfortunately the picture doesn’t really do it much justice and it doesn’t show the colour properly, it’s more brown in real life. I’ll try adding better pictures when I get round to taking some.
I used the pattern for Coat 115 in the 11/2007 issue of Burda magazine with some minor adjustments.
Tweed, interlining, lining, 6 buttons
