This coat is the first outdoor clothing I have made.
My plan was to make a simple short coat/jacket that I can wear early autumn and at springtime. As usual when I try to make something new, it goes wrong. Well not exactly, wrong… However, the design on the coat did not fit my body. I was about to just “give it away” before my mom saw the coat and said she wanted to buy it.
The coat did really look good on her, and I am happy that someone could use it, because I thought I had sewn the coat wrong when the fitting was weird on me.
The fabric is a coat fabric made with 80% polyester, 18% viscose and 2% elastin.
I fell in love with the coat fabric because of the embroidery on it. I thought it would look very good on a coat for me. The problem was that I chose a wrong pattern design for me to wear. If I would make a coat again, then I hope I find a fabric that gives me a similar vibe as this one, and also a coat that looks good on me of course!
The pattern is from Burda Easy 5/2021. It was very easy to sew and it is beginner friendly if you want to try to make a simple jacket or coat.
