Dave’s black and white coat of amazingness

Dave’s sewing skills continue to expand exponentially, this coat is the Adam pattern off Burdastyle, which is an advanced pattern! This is only the third garment he has sewn, ever. And it’s a flipping coat! Isn’t it amazing? The pattern is for it to go straight down, but Dave gathered it a bit at the back and added the band at the back. An improvement I think! Sorry if I’m being a wee bit gushy, I’m just so impressed!

The fabric is from Ikea and the buttons are made from the fabric too. Since everything was bought new, the total cost of this was probably about £50, which is a lot, but a coat like that would probably cost at least £200 if you bought it in a shop.

    Blimey, he's got magic hands! When I first saw the photo – before reading the text – I was absolutely certain the coat was from Desigual! And that would cost even more than 200 quid! Great job!!!
