Wally tailors his version of Burda 8275 in the Tchad Workrooms

Wally Works Up Burda #8275

Wally bought some thick old-fashioned tweed for his coat from Burda #8275.

Lined with red flannel backed satin, this is a great project as a first tailoring project.  The garment itself is pretty straightforward, and the looser wool allows you to tailor it with a mistake or two without looking homemade.

Wally's version of Burda 8275 in the Tchad Workrooms
This loosely woven tweed needed some extra stability in it to keep it from sagging. You can see the difference in the right and left sleeve – one has been underpinned with interlining and the other hasn’t.
