Pattern Review: Burda 7587 Coat

Threads magazine - 151 – Oct./Nov. 2011 Issue

Style Tip: To highlight this coat's bias cut, select a balanced plaid fabric or stripe.

This review was originally featured in Threads #151 (October/November 2010).

Burda 7587

This bias-cut topper is a blank canvas for creativity with a full silhouette in two lengths. The minimal details – including a wide collar, front placket, and patch pockets – allow for plenty of opportunities to customize the look. The fit is generous for the given sizes. Therefore, depending how much ease is preferred, simply measure the tissue to select appropriate size. This coat will easily slip over all garments. Depending on volume preferences, it can be made in several weight fabrics from satins and lightweight water-resistant material to wools, home decorating fabrics, velvets, and even brocades for evening.

(Sized 10-22 for busts 32.5-44 in. and hips 34.5-46 in.)

Style Tip: To highlight this coat’s bias cut, select a balanced plaid fabric or stripe.
