Quilted Coat Finished!!

Hello Everyone,

I finally finished my coat (Burda #7582/"A").



















I chose fabric that I got at Gail K. Fabrics on my "Fabricology Field Trip" that I went on with Sue and other classmates. The wrong side of fabric became the right side of my fabric because I loved the serged edges of each block. It was difficult sewing through sometimes, but, worth it. The pattern called for a 6" zipper for the sleeves and I couldn't locate that size in either Hancock Fabrics or Joann's. So, I purchased the 7" zipper and cut it to size (per Sue's instructions). I was a little uneasy doing this, but, it worked out beautifully. I love the D-Ring belt buckle and the blue quilted fabric for the lining. This jacket will be perfect for Spring and Fall.

I am also going to make a matching tote bag with it. I just have to choose a pattern that will work perfectly with it. Once I complete the tote, I will post pictures of it.

I am linking to these parties.

Take care,

  5. You are a super skilled artisan to be able to make a jacket like this. Perfect! Especially when you chose to turn the fabric wrong side out. I like the sash at the waist line. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! Following you back!

  20. I've been tempted to use the wrong side of the fabric because I liked it as much as the right side.

    Nice job!
