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
