I started sewing 2 years ago and I decided that my first clothe would be a coat. I really liked the outfit of the pattern and it was very different from those you can buy, so that is why I thought I had to make it. Moreover I found a great blue wool fabric in the same store. Concerning the lining, I had a hard time finding the same blue color. Because I didn't know anything about sewing, it took me a long time to make this coat but because of the fabric price, I had to sew it anyway. Burda coat 7285, model A, is a bulky coat with a stand-up collar and double-breasted. I sewed size 38 but it was to big for me and as I didn't have my mannequin yet, when I realized my mistake it was too late !
