New York, New Yo...






This is the double breasted variation to the Talea coat. This version has no lapel, and instead a taller collar stand. The patch pocket has been replaced with a hip yoke curved pocket! Make it in a heavy weight fabric for a warm winter or try it in a floral print or cotton sateen for an elegant evening coat!

Material Notes

Wool flannel, quilted lining, glass buttons

    I’m so (having a hard time -edit) doing this!!

    Can I mention the fact that the instructions for assembly is merely the copied normal Talea Version, which does not at all suffice for this edited version. 1. There’s no mention of pocket assembly. 2. There’s no mention of putting the collar together before attaching it. 2.a. There’s also no mention of sewing the jacket together fronts to backs at shoulder seam. I feel very lucky I have put a jacket together beforehand, otherwise I would be lost. 3. There’s no instruction on how you got it to slope down on your sample. 4. You told me to turn my front princess seam to the side which would run over the pocket that you never told me to put on. Thanks.

    I personally love the mismatched look. Gives it an edge. Lovely piece of work. Will be attempting this soon. x

    This is a really beautiful coat. I’m a novice sewer but this pattern will keep me motivated. I’m going to make it one day (maybe even with the big plaid pattern). watch this space! Meanwhile I’m starting with a humbler creation (a dress, 8351). Wish me luck.

    Hi Everybody! Honestly, I think it is really hard to match the plaid and I would probably suggest to anyone to choose an easier fabric. The reason why the back is so weird is because a little mishap happened to us the last minute before the photoshoot: we burned the entire back panel with the iron, which was on a setting way to high for the woolen material. Consequently we had to take the back panel out and replace it with the remaining scraps of the fabric in the last minutes before the shoot. You see our sewing is just as prone to accidents as any of yours, but often, even if not in this case, those accidents turn out to be great!

    it looks a bit unmatched down the back… but otherwise this is a lovely piece of work! Maybe I’ll try it once I’m done sewing my line up of other projects… hoo boy.

    I would LOVE to make this… I’m only beginning to make my own clothes, and I’m hoping this isn’t too complicated… I’ll keep my eye out for some plain burgundy fabric, black buttons, and black lining.

    So long as I don’t wear a checkered scarf with it I won’t look too much like Doctor Who!

    I love the shape of this coat, and I’m going to make this but probably out of plain bright fabric so I don’t have to worry about matching it up. If I start soon it should be ready for next winter!

    Goodness! I didn’t think I could like the original Talea any more but this is an excellent Variation. Kudos Burdastyle! :)

    I like it…that fabric looks like a tough one to match up, but I’m so down with the plaid…
