Coat Project! BWOF 11-2006 #107




I am ready for the sewing workshop!  Here is my toile.  Don't I just feel fancy.  yep.  I will cut it shorter to mid-thigh and I will use a houndstooth fabric that I bought for a tailoring workshop a few years ago.  Last year I joined Marji's Great Coat Sewalong, but I wasn't 100% confident that I could pull it off, so now finally I will sew a nice tailored coat.
yippeee!

  1. Looks like you got the fit wrestled down, Robin! I looked up the tech drawing (http://www.burdafashion.com/en/Magazines/Archives/107_Coat_technical_drawing/1270777-1463237-1426110-1426112-1426137-1429099.html), what a nice classic cut that is; are you going to include the large patch pockets? Looking forward to your step by step (I'm also making a BWOF coat right now, but a different style), and, of course, the final product.
