Winter's arrived...Pattern Review Burda 8292

The perfect pattern review for the 1st day of Winter '08 would have to be this Burda 8292 coat ( View A ) made up by Georgia in Tessuti's 70% Wool 20% Polyamide and 10% Cashmere Flannel Coating in 'Turquoise'.

The only adjustments Georgia made to the pattern was to take the coat in at the seams from just under the bust to the hips ( Georgia wanted a more semi - fitted look to the coat ). This is Georgia's first attempt at making a coat!! She has done a really amazing job.

Once the jacket was put together - Georgia had it professionally pressed and for a more professional finish - key-hole buttonholes were done on an industrial keyhole machine. You can also have this service done at Quick Buttonhole Service - 22 Botany Rd Alexandria Sydney 2015 (02) 9699 2050 (call Mick for details and prices ).

And don't you just love these fabulous black 30mm buttons? They are some of the latest from Tessuti's Winter button range.

Georgia got a headstart on a coat in time for the cold if you are thinking of making a new coat this Winter ....get into Tessuti.


  1. That coat is stunning! I am so in love with that turquoise coating!

  2. great colour - one of my favourites! and I can believe winter is starting in Australia! here it is 30 degree Celsius and I love making some summer clothing!

  3. Beautiful, bothe the model and the fabric! What a great color!

  4. Thanks for the compliments. As soon as I saw this delicious turquoise blue wool, I knew that I wanted to attempt my first coat.

  5. I am going to attempt to make my first coat as well. Did you underline your coat with anything to make it warmer? Do you have any suggestions for someone making their first attempt at a winter coat? I'm making a knee length for
    my 7 year old daughter. I chose Burda pattern 9596

  6. Natalia,

    Yes the coat was interfaced and lined. No need to meke it warmer underneath, here in Australia our winters are very mild.

    The best advice I can give you when making your first coat would be to use a quality wool - suitable coating weight -wool/angora blends are lovely.

    Also most importantly make a calico/muslin before cutting into your fabric.
