Everyone has been sick in my household. Both kids simultaneously, then me. Then them again. Then all of us at the same time. It has been a hardcore fortnight, and I am just coming up for air. I wasn’t up for a challenge, and this coat pattern in the Burda Easy Autum/Winter 5/2015 was the instant gratification that I was after.
The black and white boucle I purchased a few years ago with the intention of making a similar style of coat to this one. That coat never came to be, but when I saw this one in the Burda Easy last year (“easy” was the only thing I could fathom at that stage my life) I immediately remembered this fabric and hoped to make this coat with it as soon as I was able.
True to the pattern I did not line this coat, I simply bound all facings and hems.
