Warm Winter Coat

Coat made using Burda Pattern no 7458 for Daughter No2. This fabric is amazing! So thick, and doesn’t fray. The pattern is fabulous & I just know Daughter No2 is going to be toasty warm this winter in it! I’m definitely thinking of making one fo the other versions in the envelope. The lining is red – of course, & I used some lovely brass buttons to give it more of a military feel.

Material Notes

Double faced wool with cupro lining.

    WOW~!!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

    I’ve been looking all over for a good coat pattern, I want to make sort of a Lolita style one. Thanks for posting which pattern you used. How was it to follow?

    Any hints on where to buy wool from? Yours is just amazing.

      Hi there. It was pretty simple to follow, I shortened the overall length slightly, and reduced the number of buttons, otherwise the basics are as intended.

      I used the other side of the fabric for the facing and inner collar, the client wanted it to be plain rather than patterened like the outside. The coat is interfaced with a mix of speed and traditional tailoring. I used a double layer of padding in the sleeve head in order to make sure the roll stayed up, that wool used is rather heavy, and I didn’t want the puff to sag.

      Where to buy fabric is the million pound question. I have a very good fabric shop about 20 minutes form me, this was purchased there for £15 per metre. Bargain!
