Wool Coat - Burda Style 101, 3/2010

Added Oct 11, 2010

Guildford, Unite...






What a pleasure it was to sew this coat! With 3/4 length raglan sleeves, a beautiful collar and two welt pockets, it was exactly the style I’ve been waiting for from Burda. The suggested fabrics were boucle or reptile print lacquer fabric (whatever that means!), but I opted for a straightforward wool, of rather heavy weight. I wanted a proper winter coat and yes, living in the UK I risked getting half of my arms frozen off, but I absolutely love the result and wouldn’t change a thing about the pattern.

Material Notes

Coat weight undyed wool in herringbone weave

    Thanks everyone for your comments! I have uploaded two more images, showing how it looks on a human rather than a hanger.

    Lovely coat…all you need is a pair of long gloves would look wonderful with this style and save you arms!

    I love it!! The classic style is always really flattering, and never looks unfashionable :) You did a wonderful job!

    This is a lovely, lovely coat – you’ve done a fab job.

    That wool is just beautiful. Much better that any “reptile print lacquer fabric” could ever be!!! ;)
