Basti's new fall overcoat

Added Oct 9, 2012

Cologne, Germany






Hey :-)

Finally I did it! It took a looooong time…
I made this new overcoat with a huge back for beeing able to drive with it, without taking it off. :-)

In this coat, the lining is a very easy variation, but as I never fill up my inner pockets, I let them out directly.
As you can see in one picture, I’ve testet the hand stich imitation of my sewing machine in the lining part. It works great, but next time, I will really do it by hand.

If you like to see more pictures, just visite my blog www.delgato.blog.de

I have to practise buttonholes :(

Pattern is made by myself.

So long,
Basti :)

Material Notes

Grey Wool, canvas for inlays and normal lining




Garment Type
Classic, Evening Wear, Vintage

    Nice! I’m new to this community, and am still in the process of learning. I have drafted several of my own patterns and made several hats and jackets, each one gets better than the last. Your work is truly awesome. Glad to see another man sewing and designing.
