|Pattern Description: (From Burdastyle.com)|
This lovely coat is from designer Gabriele Strehle who’s work is based on purity, clarity, and
naturalness. The little black coat for everyday wear. Double-breasted, slightly flared, with perfectly
shaped section seams and classic two seam sleeves. The patch pockets with rounded flaps make lovely
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?Surprisingly good for Burda. I followed them religiously except for the button holes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the simple lines, the double brest (reminds me of a sailor coat) the lenght, the sleeves. The collar is quite clever too. It is a two piece collar that looks like it is single. The least favourite feature are the pockets
Fabric Used:Wool with polyester I think!
Cotton for the lining
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I made bound button-holes and I enjoyed learning how to make them. I used the Coletterie method. I think it is quite smart: The squares for bounding are cut on the bias, then ironed so they are not too bulky.
I also piped the pockets and the flaps. From previous experiences I knew the lining was going to show in some places if I didn´t
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I don´t think I´ll sew this again, but I recommend it whole-heartedly
Conclusion: Love my new coat! I know I´m going to get a lot of wear from it, and most importantly I´ve enjoyed a lot making it!
