Yet More Burda!

You were on tenterhooks, right?!  Here is the other pattern:

Burda 7072

Gah!  Look at that coat!  I die!  Here, take a closer look:

This is the version I'll be making.

Here are the line drawings:


Of course, there's a back story.

Over the summer, I came across this coat* on Burda Style and decided I must make one like it.  The pattern was in a back issue of Burda magazine, December 2011.  I checked around on eBay until I found it - my copy came all the way from Israel. 

Here's the picture from the magazine.
And the line drawing.

Then the fall got busy, and before I knew it the weather appropriate for a coat like this had passed, so I put the project on a back burner.  I was thinking of making a version in springtime fabric, but then when this new pattern came out, I changed my mind!  So now my plan is to make the 7072 for spring, and consider making this one early next fall.  Aside from loving the style of the new pattern, I also feel like I want to get started on my 2013 goal of making a coat earlier rather than later.

I was thinking I'd like to make the coat in a pale pink sateen (how original!), but while I was looking around online for it, I came across this:

Anna Maria Horner cotton sateen "Turn of Events" in Blush

And it was on sale.  Done and done!  The roses are quite large:


I'm really looking forward to making this as my first coat project.  I'm planning to make this my February project, so something to look forward to!

* I'm a huge fan of this girl's work - I love everything she makes and just her style in general.  I wish I could read her blog:  it's all in Polish!

    1. Thanks, Kathy! I tried it out. As you can imagine, there were some pretty laughable results, but at least now I can figure out what patterns and fabrics she used!
