Electric Blue Coat

Exactly one year has passed since I began sewing again after many years of hiatus. Decided to celebrate the event sewing a coat. I have chosen a very simple model without too many details, in order to learn to sew a lined garment, and most importantly – to overcome the barrier, inner fear of a more complex model. Fabric – wool, lining – viscose. The coats is so light and comfortable.

    I am making this coat and having some trouble with the pockets, which are gape. Did you find this problem? Looks great, by the way!

      Hi, cornsey! Yes, the same with my pockets here. That’s why in my new coat I’ve just omitted them.

    I have a similar pattern lined up! – I’ve just got to get the fabric. Coats and jackets scare me a little too. I have made a few, but all those fine details really set you off down the wrong path. A simple coat like this is a great starter. Terrific job!

      alekat, thank you! My first jacket was a disaster, but this time I decided to make it right. I read a lot about sewing a coat, fusible interfacing, ecc, I took my time, and the result is quite satisfying.

      Oh good idea. I have a few sewing books but I never remember to pull them out when I’m having problems!
