What a pleasure it was to sew this coat! With 3/4 length raglan sleeves, a beautiful collar and two welt pockets, it was exactly the style I’ve been waiting for from Burda. The suggested fabrics were boucle or reptile print lacquer fabric (whatever that means!), but I opted for a straightforward wool, of rather heavy weight. I wanted a proper winter coat and yes, living in the UK I risked getting half of my arms frozen off, but I absolutely love the result and wouldn’t change a thing about the pattern.
