Beograd, Serbia







i made a new coat, finally
thanks to my dear friend tea
(read more about that on my blog mokosha)
used burda magazine pattern (08/2012, mod 101)
and 2.2m of b&w wool houndstooth boucle fabric that i had in my stash for years
i made size 38, but added really small seam allowances
in order to make a coat slightly smaller than size 38
it’s a great pattern, and quite easy to execute
and i did not make any changes to the original pattern
i planned to use thermal quilted lining
and even had it all cut and prepared for sewing
but at the last monent i realized it’s way too thick
and switched to regular satin lining instead
pants are another version of my favorite pattern (burda 07/2011, #102)
and shirt is also made from burda pattern (05/2012, #104), i’ve posted it on this forum before

Material Notes

2.2m wool fabric
1.4m satin
2 really big sew in snaps
2m mid weight interfacing (used for collar and collar stand, hems, facings, and also added to upper parts of coat front, back, side and sleeves)
for pants: 1.2m b&w pinstripe wool suiting




Garment Type
Casual, Classic
Satin, Wool
