    I LOOOOve this coat. Is it going to be available in a plus size pattern. I need this pattern in a size 18-20. Would it be hard to adjust myself, I’ve never done that before.

      I second this question! Looks amazing, but a little complicated to adjust for a plus size newb.

    Please state which pattern pieces are to be cut in interfacing. I’ve bought this pattern and just started to cut out the fabric and realised that the interfacing pieces aren’t specified. Please can you post an addition to the instructions and state which pattern pieces are to be cut out in interfacing. Thanks!

    swoon If I can pull it off, I want this to be my spring trenchcoat. So lovely. I’ll have to really work hard sewing up until then, though, and learn a lot. Could this pattern be adapted to a petite size?

    I’d love to know, is this due to come out in the plus size range? (I apologise if this question was asked & answered earlier. I have not read all 40odd posts!)

    half way through the muslin – ordered the wool (its cold! silk wont cut the mustard!) and i love its so much!!! instructions are pretty clear… i work with the vogue sewing book (sew technique bible!) and that helps clear up anything im not sure of! Not too tricky either – i wouldnt say it was advanced… cannot wait to finish it! hurry up fabric and arrive!!!

    Thanks for a great pattern! This is the first pattern I have purchased from BurdaStyle. I finished a muslin last night – it fits great, and looks as good as the pictures!

    This is gorgeous. I love the flow of the fabric, how it’s a trench but somehow unique, the gathered hem. This is way beyond me but is certainly to aspire to! Maybe not silk though—even when I am confident enough to make this I am sure I’ll still be intimidated by silk. Somehow I can’t imagine it’s easy to work with, plus there’s the price pressure!

    And my coat quest is complete! I’ve been after a bunch of different coats-pea, trench, cape, skirted-these last two patterns Burda has posted have fufilled it! I could see myself making this with a heavy lining like wool so the coat would be warm with a beautiful maybe natural silk for the top part… Gorgeous!

    If it so difficult to draft a one-style for all sizes, how in the world does Hot Patterns keep turning out such great designs? Sizes run 6-26, some are in a three-body shape groupings. I pay for these gladly. I know I won’t need to wonder if the instructions are correctly and completely written, or if all the pieces are in the pattern. The new Boudoir of Bliss group will be my next choice. The Bel Air pattern looks so good. Cordially, Nehmah

      Okay, but to be fair, their patterns cost 2-3 times as much as BurdaStyle, and they’re also not supporting a great website with user forums, project uploads, and how-tos. I understand the desire for a bigger size range since I’m often at the upper limit of the so-called “normal” size range myself, but I also appreciate BurdaStyle’s efforts to keep the prices down, since I am also broke :) I think it’s totally fair to voice a desire for bigger size ranges (or cheaper patterns!), but it’s also worth recognizing that every pattern maker has to make tradeoffs, and not all will go the way we personally want them to go…

    Very nice one! I really like it, looks beautiful. But its kind of very very timeconsuming to click on all those pictures, where is the view all-button?

    Love it! Its gorgeous. Although I’m on a complete budget at the moment, and so unfortunately can’t justify this (especially as I already have a trench coat!), it’s inspired me to adjust a trench coat that I have. One for the future…

    Even though I usually find the Burdastyle patterns rather awkward or falling into the category “Why make if you can buy similar for cheaper than the fabric”, this one stands out. It’s original and elegant and I even like the hem that most seem to dislike.

      …. Remember that cheap fabric is purchased by manufacturers at wholesale price and without any input from the consumer. Fabric choice is crucial to the overall aesthetic and quality of a garment. Also think about what the cost of labor is for a cheap garment. How well are the workers paid and how well is the garment actually made if the entire thing cost less than your fabric of choice? These are things I think about to justify my fabric and pattern purchases. :) Plus, individuality and pride are priceless.

    Was really loving this pattern and was even thinking in terms of making it as a dress without the lining or puff hem until someone said it didn’t come in the plus size. However, at my skill level I may still be able to do it. After all I basically just have to adjust the top part to fit me. Well, we’ll see.

    Coats don’t do much good to keep you warm when you’re not wearing pants lol. Model looks cold haha. It’s pretty nice! Again, the plus sized thing, but I’ll get over that.
