Snowflake cocoon coat

Added Nov 11, 2011

San Jose, Califo...






This coat is made using the burda 03/2010 coat 101A pattern. However, I wanted it to be more of a cocoon shape instead of flaring out. So I simply took the side seams in smoothly on the bottom, also made the sleeves straight instead of flared. I also eliminated the back seam. The coat is one of the easiest coat pattern to sew as it has so little seams.

I modified the collar a little so it bubbles up. Originally I wanted to make a hoodie, but I only got 2 yards and there was not enough left to make a hoodie. So a bubbly collar will do.

The coating material has rows of snow flakes on it, its so cute! the reason i bought it even though its only 10% wool :)

Material Notes

10%wool, 90% poly

    i love this! so pretty! this also makes me reconsider ‘gray’ fabric for a coat again. I plan to make a coat as well, but originally i was only looking at brighter colors, but this is just really pretty!

    Your coat is beautiful and looks so warm and cozy. I really like the lining fabric and the structural changes you have made to the Burda pattern. And I also like how well made your coat is. Well done.
