It is my coat, or bits of my coat for the BurdaStyle Book. I hope I’m not showing too much, just the details of the stitching that went into it in 5 days. Actually a day and 4 evenings.
I did read a lot before sewing this coat, I posted some of the links already, but just to keep it next to the photo so I’ll know what to do next time.
Nameless tutorial 2 shows how the hem facing is done: http://www.fashion-incubator.com/archive/nameless_tutorial_2/
Have a look at Tany’s lining next to back facing and hem facing and lining.
I made the piping myself and it is one quick and easy project: http://mirelap.wordpress.com/2010/07/14/seeeeewing/
Note to self: Leave a lot more hem allowance on the sleeves! Lot: like 15 cm more. When I added the shoulders, the sleeves got shorted with the thickness of the shoulder…Lucky my design called for cuffs, lucky I made them big.

After all, I ended up buying mine, time was of the essence.
Hope there images do not give away too much and the design will still be saved for the book!
