My Spring'07 Burberry prorsum purple coat

Added Feb 29, 2008

Livingston, New ...






I finished this coat before Xmas last year but have no chance to show here.

Pattern was base on Burda pattern #106 from 9/07 issue,
I drafted the collar by using mrs.stylebook
as the guideline, back then no body have
done this collar pattern, now you can
use burda mag. for both collar and sleeve!
I have never done anything with interlining
of tailoring before so
it took me a long time to study the interfacing, interlining and tailoring for coat.

This is my first winter coat.
I was inspried by elainemay of burdastyle (she doesn’t play here anymore, too sad, I
miss her and her creations so much. If not
for her awesome coats, I would never ever
thought of making one.

I love the original coat as is so I didn’t change the design one bit.

Material Notes

Wool from NYC garment district.

    Thank you so much for such nicest complements ever. I love purple. Yes, I’m worried that my arms will be cold, but it’s spring coat, may be it’s not too cold. Well, it came out good because I’ve paid alot of time and attention in it. You would get the same result if you put your mind into it.

    Really hot. I tried on a vintage coat like this in Vancouver, it was purple too. But I didn’t have the money to buy it. So sad.

    this is soo pretty! and again I love the look of the sleeves, but I am always so afraid of being cold in shorter sleeves. The pleats at the collar are just great!
