Grey dots winter coat

Added Dec 18, 2010

Vaucluse, France






winter coat based, rather loosely on the burda style 3/2010 pattern A. The inspiration behind the coat was a Kate Spade coat (see my blog for pictures – link below) and I adapted the burda pattern accordingly – shortening the length, the sleeves (to get the bracelet length sleeve), omitting the collar and adding a self drafted scarf collar that forms a loose bow and adding a back belt. I also used some couture tailoring techniques including hand basting in canvas hair interfacing, tailor padding and taping the necessary seams.

For far more construction detail than you could possibly want to read and pictures galore as it all came together please see my blog

Material Notes

wool outer fabric, canvas hair interlining, tailor padding

    yeah I always look at Kate Spade retro feel stuff and think ….surly I can make that! (and then I never do)….You however produced a just wonderful coat using them as inspiration. Yours is so much nicer than their striped version too so much more subtle and classic and oh so wonderfully retro.
