What a great variation on the classic peacoat! The fabric is fantastic.

I'm working on a coat (different one) from this same Burda issue and I feel your pain about the welt pockets and notch collar! I'm using a fairly lightweight wool and it is still a major pain, wait til you hear about the bound buttonholes. Great job and I admire your perseverance!!

I LOVE the plaid for both of you! This was a classic when I was young (50+ yrs. ago) and will be for another 50 years! Good job and lucky daughter.

A wonderful, stylish coat. Working with fabric that thick- and plaid! could not have been easy, but you mastered it to perfection.

My teen daughter and I both love this coat. I've been looking for a pattern like that and you're right - it's just not out there. The fabric choice is perfect.

Very stylish and beautifully constructed coat for your lovely daughter! "Burda usually knows what they are doing" gave me a chuckle. Do you have a picture of you and your daughter in your matching coats? That would be so cool!

This was "the" coat style when I was about nineteen, um, forty years ago! It's a copy of a sailor's peacoat, ergo the pocket placement (no bust on the men). I agree, it's such a classic, it should be a perennial in the pattern books. Your version is beautiful. Lucky daughter, great review.

Your daughter must be delighted with her coat! It is fabulous. Thank you for the helpful review. Just a note--I always think of pocket placement as an individual thing and not something to adhere to strictly--pin them on and look in the mirror, adjust and then sew. Still it is odd for them to have planned pockets at the bust point.

Such a nice classic pattern, I'm suprized yours is the first review! I'm not suprized that your daughter would pick the same fabric tho, both coats are beautiful! Excelent work, and thanks for the pocket tip. Love your daughter's hair too!
