My previous work, the fall coat in Harris tweed (Burda 08/2016, mod.116) was such a success with my friends and I loved the pattern and the coat so much – I was keen to make another one in a different fabric. I knew that those lapels would look fantastic in solid color and be the central detail of this elegant and sophisticated model. And it was high time for me to start a project for somebody else.
My friend chose this beautiful coat wool from Paul&Joe in this interesting shade of grey. Depending on the light and the surrounding color palette, this color can vary and look either anthracite grey or dark navy blue. We chose stripy anthracite grey satin for the lining.
Like in case with my coat in Harris tweed, this coat is longer than the original model in the magazine. For my friend’s height of 174cm I added 15 cm in length when cutting the fabric. The final length of the coat is 10cm longer than the original. I used a 3m cut of main fabric and 2m of lining to make this coat.
