Fabric is wool with the other side poly (I'm not a poly fan but sometimes it is necessary).
I just love the different pieces and the style is so elegant. This time I read the instructions carefully, as I sometimes have trouble with Burda, but funny how this particular pattern didn't give me any problems. Maybe I'm just getting use to them - about time!!
Fabric bought from Tessuti and it is black poly and charcoal wool - unfortunately sold out in Melbourne.
Managed to figure out how to sew and pivot - did a test to figure it out, but I ended up sewing the front without testing and then that lightbulb moment - do a test!! and the rest was easy.
Jess preferred the shiny side to be on the shoulder front and back. This is in fact the inside of the garment. Overlocked the opened seams and only overlocked one of the seams and cut back the one that was going to sit under - creating less bulk.

I rolled the facing forward to allow the black shiny fabric to peep through to mimic piping.
Unfortunately the model was not wearing the right outfit underneath - wanted her to wear burnt orange, but if I had to wait any longer - it wouldn't get posted. This coat/dress is great to wear on a spring night when you don't want bulk of a winter coat but the nights are still cool - and the look is more slim line for an evening outfit - not formal though.
I really enjoyed making this.
