long 70s coat inspiration

Saturday, March 3, 2018

I have a few sewing projects in the pipeline, but wanted to share the inspiration for a coat instead! My two next projects are a pair of Ginger Jeans & Hudson joggers for Japan, but after that I plan to make this coat by BurdaStyle. I'd love to sew it up before, but I don't think I will have the time nor the money. For the fashion fabric, it requires 4.5 yards alone!! Then lining, fancy snaps, shoulder pads...

I'll be honest with you. I've read the directions a few times and my head is spinning. I am most worried about dealing with the lining and the double vents in the back. I will say I am excited to have a project that has some techniques I haven't used before. Welt pocket flaps, double vents, and shoulder pads. It's a tall order. It'll be a bit before it makes it onto the blog, and will probably be feeling warmer days by the time its complete!
