Pattern Description:
Fully lined coat with panel seams and seam or patch pockets.
Pattern Sizing:
Misses 8-22. I made a 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Burda instructions were not detailed and difficult to follow. The pattern pieces went together well but I didn't follow the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This coat has classic style and a beautiful collar.
Fabric Used:
I used a cotton/spandex sateen and a solid red silk/cotton lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made view E with inseam pockets instead of patch and made a 3/4 length sleeve. I raised the inseam pockets about 2" because they were too low. I added ric rac to the inside as piping between the facing and lining.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely make this again....in pink! For more info on details and inspiration check out my blog

Glad you posted a review here. I followed the Fabricista Contest and your work was consistently fine. This trenchcoat is a case in point. The entire outfit suits you and is beautiful in every detail.
