|Pattern Description: |
This is an asymmetrical coat with a Mod or Nehru collar sleeve vents and princess seams
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
More or less, mine is bulkier fabric so the lines aren't quite as sleek
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't look at them. Instead I used Gertie's Starlet Suit course, her various blog tutorials and the book "Tailoring."
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the style lines. It's elegant and "different." I've been hankering after a winter white coat for a while, and this seemed to have a perfect mix of fashionable and timeless.
Mood winter white wool. The fabric has lines of a plasticy material running through it, not sure what it is, but if gives the coat a really pleasing texture and some interest to the eye.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None, are you kidding me! I was very nervous of screwing this up. So no style changes. I did add lots of things that Burda doesn't mention, such as hair canvas, a back stay, shoulder guards, etc.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If this is to your style then you should sew with confidence! I did find that the 38 was too tight so I had to go up to a 40. But it could be my expanding physique that is a problem, not the pattern.
I am very happy with my coat! For lots more detail and progress shots go to my Blog
