Rose Spring Coat

Added May 5, 2012

I finished this coat “just in time” for when I don’t need it anymore because it is too warm now…

The pattern is from Burdastyle magazine 1/2011, Nr. 118, shortened, with long sleeves, and pleats in the back and front instead of gatherings. I tried some classical tailoring methods with this coat, which went surprisingly well and not as time consuming as expected. I added hair canvas interfacing to the front, shaped the undercollar with hair canvas and padstitching, and set the lining in completely by hand (not sure if I will do that again, though). I also made bound buttonholes and used lining covered snaps as inner button.

All in all a nice experience, and I think the nicest collar I ever made!

Material Notes

Wool, lining, hair canvas interfacing

    This is really adorable! This sweet pink color emphasises in a very pretty way the bebe style, you have a baby face and this suits you!

    good work with the collar!! Wenn du noch einen Kettstich über die Bruchkante vom Kragen stickst, bleiber noch besser in Form. Schöne Arbeit!!!!
