How I CREATED my new WINTER COAT

How I CREATED my new WINTER COAT


Hi! In this video I would like to show you
my new coat. I used around 3,5 meters of this fabric which was around 1,5
meters wide, I used around 4 meters of the lining fabric. I also saved some leftovers
from the fabric that I used to make the coat warmer. I used quite a lot of it, it was I
think 5 meters and the fabric was like 90 centimeters or 1 meter wide, and when I had
it in the middle of my room it was like having a huge cloud on my floor. So that was pretty
funny. From this information you might probably already guessed that the coat is quite heavy
but I really don´t mind because it keeps me warm when it is really cold outside. I
chose a light colour for my coat because I like to brighten up the streets when everyone
is wearing black or dark blue coats but I must admit it is not that practical because
it might get dirty on the bottom hem and that is why I chose a fabric that could be washed
and does not need dry cleaning. I also used this type of buttonholes. I was quite scared
at the time when I was making them that I will destroy the whole thing because it was
one of the last steps I had to do and I also can show you how they are made. You use 2 pieces
of the fabric, you sew them on the top and then you make a quite big hole in the fabric,
on the right side of the fabric and pull it inside like this and then you have to handsew
it so it will look like this. It is quite a big hole and when it does not work out the
whole thing is destroyed but luckily that was not my case. I also used metal buttons,
I really like their design but I think there is one issue with them, I think that they
are quite sharp and that they are cutting the threads that hold them and this is why
I already tore one off. I also made a hidden pocket inside because sometimes I don´t want
to wear a handbag and I need to put somewhere my wallet and keys and also mobile phone,
so this might solve it. I must say that it was amazing to have such a long coat because
recently we had -10 degrees Celsius and it was keeping me warm, it was amazing, I was
able to walk outside and did not feel cold, I felt warm. Thank you for watching my video
I hope you enjoyed it as I enjoyed creating this coat, which was quite a challenge for
me. I would like to create some more coats but right now I was quite overwhelmed with
it, it was quite hard to handle so huge fabric in my sewing machine, so I might give myself
a pause with making coats and this is all from me today. Bye!
