Burda 10-2016-119 Warm Melton Pea Coat

Hi! I made the pea coat from the BurdaStyle Magazine.
I used this pattern, you can get it here; Detachable Fur Collar Coat 10/2016 #119. This white jacket is another version; Cropped Pea Coat 10/2016 #118. I love the both versions.

I cut a size 38. I shortened the sleeve length by 1 3/8 inches, and narrowed the shoulders by 5/8 inches. I had some left over fabrics and two buttons, so I made the back belt from them.

I've made a standard welt pocket. The first time I tried to make this pocket type, so I barely succeeded. It was very difficult to make them. These instructions didn't have any illustrations! I think the standard welt pockets are better made for the thick melton wool. I sewed the red faux leather buttons. They go well with my red gloves.

I made the detachable fur collar but it was too SMALL! I couldn't insert the jacket collar into its casing. It was a complete mistake(> <) I made it using the pattern of the detachable collar but I thought it's too thick to make a collar with fur fabric. I compared the patterns of the detachable collar and the jacket collar and they are the same size. It's strange! I decided to save the detachable collar for a different sewing project. I think that this pea coat looks nicer without a fur collar compared to if it had one.

I wanted to make a basic pea coat. I am very pleased with the result. If you would like to make a basic pea coat, I recommend this pattern.

In my previous post on my blog, I told you that I was planning a printed corduroy dress using McCall's 7470. I made this (view B)! I combined the plain and the printed corduroy cotton. I cut these chest pockets smaller than the conventional pocket pattern. I love this pattern but I won't make another from McCall's 7470. The reason why is that it took three times to get it. That's enough! I would like to make one with a new pattern.


Fabric: Coat 60" 2 1/2yd.
Dress 45" 1 7/8 yd (plain), 45" 1 3/8 yd (print).

Total time spent: Coat 20 hours. Dress 12 hours.

  4. Your coat is lovely! Welt pockets are hard. I have done a few now, but every time I start one, I feel like a beginner and have to follow instructions, videos, whatever I can get my hands on! And another great shirt dress--I love the fabric combination.

  6. WOW I love this, it looks so great. I bought that pattern and made a muslin but I never like double breasted coats on me so I used a different pattern when I made a pea coat. Yours is absolutely perfect. And yes, the collar is not needed. Super cute choice of fabric and your plaid matching is perfection.

  11. Your pea coat is very classic in the red,blue and beige plaid, and I really think it looks perfect without the collar. A classic like this really does not need anything else, it can detract from the beautiful lines and fabric. And I love the shirt dress too.
