Brocade Coat 💙
This is a fabulous brocade fabric I have saved to the right moment...
It was quite a challenge since the fabric was fringing a lot, but worth the effort!
I have placed the pattern as shown, and tried to match the stripes on the wrong side.
The pocket is sewn to the side seams.
I have made an inner seam close to the seam line.
Then it's easy for the pocket line to stay in place.
I have sewn the darts at the shoulders for the collar.
The facing is connected to the outer parts.
Then the sleeves have to be sewn, and the lining to come.
I chose to use turquoise satin lining.
I have used snap-buttons and made cover buttons with the same satin lining.
Voila - the coat is ready for a trip to town!
The Linen Dress is an earlier project.
Pattern from Burda Special E656 - 2004
