blue winter coat with large collar

I bought this fabric last year, but never found the right pattern to use it, until now. It’s a wool and cashmere blend and perfect for this coat. The pattern fits really well. I only adjusted the bodice, because I am small. I really like that the sleeves are tight, because normally they are always too big. The only thing is that I cannot wear a chunky sweater underneath, but fortunately the coat is quite warm.

Material Notes

Fabric: wool/cashmere
Lining: viscose
two buttons

    What a lovely coat love the color it make it so luxury and more feminine. Must admit I cud-not imagine it wood look this good in just another color. I by regularly burda ishues but the color they made it in was not my cup of tea ;-)

      Thank you! I actually really liked the colour of the fabric they made this coat in, but I had already bought this fabric. But I am pleased with my coat and this colour.

      Thanks! It took me quite some time too, especially cutting all the pattern pieces, because of the amount of fabric that was needed (around 2.6 metres) and the sewing of the hems by hand.

      Thank you so much. I really like the colour too, but now and then I wish I had bought a lighter colour, because I have several cats walking around here and the hairs stick to the fabric like crazy. I keep brushing them off.
